This beautiful handmade book art is perfect for the Grandmother in your life! Whether it's your grandmother or someone who grandmothers you, give them a gift they will love to show off to friends, co-workers, and family.

I fold these 20 cm tall books by hand to produce the beautiful word sculpture that you see in the pictures. I use my own books with vibrant leather covers and many with gilded page edging.

I can "ink" the edges of the finished word, making it highly visible even from across the room. If you prefer, you may also order the pages with a "natural" edge. This book is shown with a gold-inked edge.

A variety of Cover Colors are available for your order, as well as several inking options. Please indicate your preferences when you place your order to ensure that I can accommodate them.

Additionally, if you don't see the word you want, please let me know. I enjoy taking special orders. Please email me at jessamyn.thurston at gmail.com for more information.
