What do you do with a book that has lived its life? You give it a new one!

Each book was an unloved book rescued from the recycle bin and made into beautiful art. Pictures are removed from the book so that each folded page displays text only, making a pleasing texture for the eye.

Press Forward is my absolute favorite folding pattern. There is something so soothing to me in the rhythm of its pages. The paper is a beautiful ivory color and is sturdy and strong. The folds hold up well against use. Feel free to pick them up and don't be afraid if they fall down and go boom. They are sort of self-reinforcing. I wish I were as self-reinforcing. My ego would be soooo much healthier.

Press Forward is folded based on a pattern of my own design. This design is actually available to learn in my other product here: The Folded Book Tutorial. That one and about a billion others.

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.

It's sure to surprise people and get them talking.

Good for all book lovers!

Shipped 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.

About 7.5" x 6" x 9" wide open. You can squish it closed more or open it a bit more. Your choice.
