Marcy Bates' Profile

About

I own a used book store in Cranberry Township, PA. I often come across books that are outdated or unsellable. With an extreme personal need to keep these books out of landfills I began creating beautiful art out of them.

The book art sculptures are made by carefully folding each page of a book twice in a specific sequence to form the letters of a word, name, or graphic image. I spent much trial and error, and many books, designing and perfecting the process.

The books can be custom made in any name or word to celebrate graduation, wedding, anniversary, new baby, new job, new home, birthday, and every other occasion to be honored.

I am a proud member of the Steel Town etsy team.
