‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’ is a Limited Edition Vintage Book Sculpture – A perfectly voluptuous acorn carved from 404 pages of The Count of Monte Christo Vols I & II by Alexandre Dumas 1937
This handmade book sculpture is one of my favourite shapes, to think that this sculpture once started as a tree, became a book and now is back to being a seed again! It is from these little loves that big things grow and would make the perfect gift for that very special friend who is embarking on new adventures or ideas or simply loves nature or has a book-loving nature.
When I make the Secret Vintage Book safes 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 sculpture is the same and all have an individuality defined by their paper adornments or the back page on their reverse, their year of origin or simply their personality.
All the information of the book that she is carved from is written on a label on the base of the glass cloche so that you will always have the historical details kept with it. The glass cloche apart from having a befitting apothecary feel, keeps the dust off these delicate whimsical sculptures.
