WOODLAND WONDER

This handmade Book Sculpture is spectacular!

and 290 Pages of The Unknown Island by S.P.B.Mais 1934

This listing is for the large cloche shown in the photo on the left.

Book spiralling works best with symmetrical shapes and this pine tree is no exception. After creating the tree I have installed 25 double-sided red and beige birds to represent the 25 days leading up to Christmas Day, but it’s curious enough that you could keep it up all year round! Use it as your Christmas Tree if space is at a premium or settle it on a hall table to create a talking piece! An amazing cloche with all the information of the books it was carved from on the base so that its’ history is always kept with it.

(The cloche measures 27cm in diameter and is 41cm tall, it will come in a box with foam supports that weighs 3kg all together. Pardon my happy snaps – It is so hard to photograph it without reflection!)

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.
