Description

Book sculpture.

This Little Reader is an EXAMPLE of a book figure I have made and sold in the past. This exact sculpture is not for sale (she currently lives in Oklahoma).

This particular Little Reader sits about 3 inches tall and was built out of Elizabeth Kostova's "The Historian". She's wearing a pencil skirt and has medium length wavy hair. Little Reader is engrossed in a miniature book and looks lovely sitting a bookshelf.

The Little Reader I will make for you can be spun from the book of your choice and the book she reads built from the book jacket. She can be customized in her hairstyle, pose, size, and dress. Pricing will vary depending on the cost of the books needed, (I have access to most books in print and can acquire them at a deep discount). An approximately 3 inch sculpture with miniature book will have a base price with material fees added on.

All sculptures are treated with a UV and moisture protectant, but they are indeed delicate and not waterproof.

Custom work is really exciting to me and I will update you every step of the process. Message me and let's work together on your own custom book sculpture!

    Allison’s book sculptures are positively beautiful. The details were spot on and truly makes for a unique and special gift. She was a pleasure to work with and she takes her customers’ requests to heart in order to make such one-of-a-kind creations. Love it!

    Could not have bought a more creative, unique, one-of-a-kind, beautifully and imaginatively constructed artwork. If you love literature, sculpture, art, this will exceed your expectations. The artist is superbly talented, and a joy to with whom to work. I award her all the stars in the sky!

    I love these! They are FABULOUS and I can't wait to see my daughter and her fiance's faces when they see them at the reception. Allison took her time and worked with me on these so that they would be custom designed to reflect their favorite comic book heroes. Outstanding etsy artist!

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Work commences upon payment and most sculptures can be completed within 3-4 weeks (often sooner!) depending on the individual orders. Holiday time frames will vary, according to my work load.

Returns & exchanges

I will gladly refund payment for any sculpture that arrives damaged do to insufficient packaging. Each package is carefully wrapped to ensure safe transit and inside are detailed instructions for how to remove the sculpture from the wrappings. Please notify me within 2 business days of any damage incurred in shipping, with a picture of the damage and the box in which it arrived.

These sculptures are all one-of-kind handmade works of art. They are delicate and will vary in shape and size. Some elements of the sculpture may seem flexible or able to be slightly manipulated, but this is not recommended. The text strips are easily ripped or damaged with manipulation. No refunds will be issued for damage incurred through manipulation.

Any custom work involves as much communication with the buyer as they desire, including status reports and photos of work progress. Because of this, I cannot offer refunds on custom work.
