VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE
This handmade Book Sculpture is titled “Queen of Hearts”
It is carved from 856 pages of a:
1986 Edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll and Foolhouse!
This delightful paper sculpture is handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall)
The Queen of Hearts is carved from the body of the book with the back page being an illustration from inside the book.
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.
