Description

This miniature book brooch has been handmade in my Sydney studio from the cover illustration of John Steinbeck's masterpiece 'Of Mice and Men'. Published in 1937, it tells the story of George and Lennie, two friends moving from farm to farm in California during the Great Depression.

'His ear heard more than what was said to him, and his slow speech had overtones not of thought, but of understanding beyond thought.'

The book doesn't open, its been moulded in polymer clay which has been cured, painted and sealed with varnish. It is smaller in dimensions but more robust than the cardboard brooches also for sale in this store.

The back has a pin fixed securely with industrial adhesive.

The book's cover illustration has been treated with a 3D clear glaze that protects it and gives it a glossy shine.

The brooch is not waterproof and should be kept away from water, moisture or perfume.

Note: Because of the tiny size of these miniature books some of the smallest wording may not be readable; these mini books are designed to be suggestive of the original but are not exact replicates.

These are individually handmade little sculptures, each will have its own little unique quirks, dog-ears, wear and worn patina, wobbles and warps, all reminiscent of a well-loved and well-read book.

Size: each brooch is hand made to order and may vary slightly in thickness and size but will be approximately 4.5 x 4 cm (and approx 3mm thick)

Perfect for vintage lovers, book lovers and brooch collectors!

Postage:
Additional brooches or other small items listed in this store are all very lightweight and can be easily added to your order for no additional postage costs - please let me know if you'd like to purchase something else and I'll organise a custom order for you with just 1 x postage costs.n
