World: I love books
I adore books. I'm a chronic book worm and created this sculpture as an ode to all of us book worms of the world. As cheesy as it sounds I want to give these books a chance to tell another story.
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: 50cm x 45cm from the widest points & 5cm deep
Please contact me directly if you would like to commission larger sizes or anything else using this method of book folding.
Please note: The heart is available in one size but can be made bigger if you would like, please email me for a quote. 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 R1750 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
