What do you do with a book that has lived its life? You give it a new one! This is original book sculpture created from an unloved book rescued from the recycle bin. Pictures are removed from the book so that each folded page displays text only, making a pleasing texture for the eye.

Listening is folded based on a pattern of my own devising. Folds are evenly constructed with no tears to the paper. The end product is fairly sturdy and should withstand light bumps and bruises without losing its overall shape.

The sculpture measures about 7" tall, 5" deep and 11" across, fully opened. Book art can be displayed on a wall using a plate hanger or it can be put on its side as a decoration on a shelf.

Care for it as you would any book – dust it when it gets dusty, protect it from bugs or spills or hands that will tear the pages. Covers can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Good for all book lovers. Good for all ages – decorate children’s rooms, offices, living rooms or anywhere you want bookish inspiration.

You will get the single item shown in the picture. (Group shots not included) If you have questions about exact colors (or more about the pub date for the book), send me a conversation and I shall be happy to elucidate (that's a librarian-word).

Shipped gift-wrapped with its covers closed and carefully padded. When you receive it, just release it from its cocoon and let it relax. It will open back up to its original form.

Made in a home with cats, but the cats are very selfish and don't help. They just sleep all day long. The book smells like a lovely old book - warm and papery.

Shipping cost is based on a single item going first-class mail (2-3 days). If you don't mind waiting longer (and are in the US), I can send it parcel post (6-10 days) for about half (depending on your location). Lemme know if you are interested and I can refund the shipping cost accordingly.
