Folding with a passion

My shop started because of my girlfriend. I was looking for a gift for her upcoming birthday. After giving it some thought, I decided to give folded book art a go. I tried to create some pieces for myself, after fooling around for a few months, I got the hang of it.

After giving the book to my girlfriend, I received a lot of praise and questions on where people could buy the books. This made me decide to start an Etsy-shop. I was really surprised by the attention it got and now I'm really proud to say that my own folded books are travelling around the globe, to be gifts for people all over the world :)

    I started doing these small pieces of book art a while ago. After receiving a lot of praise, I decided to start selling them online and that's how I opened up this shop here on Etsy.

What is the purpose of Folded Book Art?

Folded Book Art is a new artform that uses old books and turns them into stunning pieces of art. There's not a real function for the books, it just creates a beautiful piece for displaying on a shelf or mantle.

All of the pages of a book are folded in a way that a symbol or word is visible. Our folded book art is a great and unique gift for an anniversary or a wedding. It will surely be a conversation piece and will amaze the recipient, we promise you that!

What kind of books do you use?

The books we use are all standard sized novels. Once standing up they are about 8 inches in height, 6 inches in width and 5 inches in depth. Currently we have Dutch and German novels in stock.
