VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE AND BOOKSAFE
Carved from 172 pages of:
A 1956 edition of The Wonderful Adventures of Nils
By Selma Lagerlof
The perfect gift for your book-loving or cat-loving friend!
The whimsical paper sculpture is handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall) The Booksafe pocket is for display or for hiding small jewellery or money in!
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. No one is the same and all have an individuality defined by their perfectly imperfect irregularity and the random text that is left behind after carving.
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.
