World: Australia Reinvented
After many requests for other continents using this technique I have created the 'Australia reinvented'. Continents are funny things when you look at them independently of the world map, some work on their own and others just look like blobs.
The books I use are all salvaged from the recycling. Most of them are between 10 and 30 years old and just don't have any resale value. One quickly sees what the most popular books are by how many you get of some titles.
Each book page is folded individually and this creates interesting shapes and patterns. I then cut the books into different sizes and glue them onto a piece of rigid board. This has a hook on the back for hanging the piece on the wall. Each one is signed.
Size: 70cm x 60cm from the widest points
Please note: This sculpture comes in the above standard size. If you would like a different size please pop me an email. Each piece is made individually and as such will not look exactly like the photograph featured - colour, shape, and heights of the books used will vary.
Shipping: This sculpture costs R2450 to send anywhere in the world outside of the borders of South Africa. I send the art piece via a registered courier service from South Africa to anywhere in the world. The box has a global tracking number. This takes between 5 to 7 working days. Please note, your country may apply import duties at the discretion of the customs official on arrival. This is for your account.
Door to door courier within the borders of South Africa is FREE
