Reading Angel is a true book worm. You will always find him in the old cozy armchair or stretching out in the hammock with a big dusty volume in his hands. Adventure novels, love and detective stories, playwrights and poems, dramas and comedies, sentimental and horror novellas - the Reading Angel literally gulps everything! He doesn't care about digital gadgets and device... It's the soft rustle of book pages which pacify his soul...

Now let's examine the physical essence of the doll. This is the poseable doll model I have worked out myself. The angel's head is made from paperclay; his hands and feet are my own gypsum casts. The face is painted with natural pigments and acrylic colors in vintage manner. The hair is modeled of papier-mâché: covered by recycled book pages and golden foil, and painted. The arms, legs and body are sewn from cotton fabric. The Reading Angel's dress is of pure cotton and decorated by lace. For his miniature hat, collar and wings I used the book pages and organza. The size of the doll from top of her head to tiptoes is 45 cm/18".

I made this doll using miscellaneous techniques of antiquing the surface and materials. It makes my Angel look like a "vintage" or "retro" item. If you are fond of "old things" and "antiques", you will find his appearance very close to your taste.

The doll's gypsum and cloth parts of arms and legs are jointed by decorative beads, that's why the Angel can move them. While sitting he can cross his legs or tuck them under himself. Being a movable interior doll, the Reading Angel cannot stand but he will cosily sit wherever you place him. The doll is not a toy but an interior item. Please don't wash it. The head can be wiped with a dry soft cloth.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
