Product Description

VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE

This handmade Book Sculpture is titledĀ “Secret Squirrel”

It is carved from 194 pages of:

1936 Edition of Schoolgirl’s Story Book

By Dean & Son and Foolhouse!

 

This delightful paper sculpture is handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 20cm in diameter and is 30cm tall)

The Sillouhette is carved from the body of the book and the acorns are taken from the spine. The log is real and was found in the bush in Kangaroo Valley, New South Wales, Australia. (where no squirrels can be found!)

When I make my 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 book lovers. No one is the same and all have an individuality defined by their paper adornments or the back page on their reverse.

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.
