An aged page Book Sculpture carved from:
198 pages of a:
1953 Edition of Lassie Come Home by Eric Knight
I always look for a word on the facing or rear page that describes this handmade book folly. I find reading between the lines is very valuable!
All the information of the book it was carved from is on the base so that its’ history is always kept with it.
(The cloche measures 10.5cm in diameter and is 19.5cm tall.)
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.
