Product Description

VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE

Carved from 164 pages of:

A 1942 edition of Mates at Billabong

By Mary Grant Bruce

The perfect gift for your book or dog loving friend! Or your sister or yourself! A highly low maintenence pet.

These whimsical paper sculptures are handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall)

The actual pup for this listing is shown on the black background photos. The styled photo is an indication of what it looks like under the glass cloche it comes in. Glass is so hard to photograph and not my forte! so please excuse the generic shot, it allows me to get these out faster to you!

When I make the Secret Vintage Booksafes I try not to waste any of the paper i carve out and re-use it to make these endearing three dimensional book sculptures for the bookish amongst us. They are a delightfully dimensional addition to bookshelves and mantles and great gifts for the book lovers. No one is the same and all have an individuality defined by their perfectly imperfect irregularity and the random text that is left behind after carving.

All the information of the book that they were carved from is on a label on the base so you will always have the details kept with it.
