Art Sculpted Books

I love to create beautifully unique art by transforming old used books. I transform only book rescued from the recycle bin, or purchased in a second hand store and make them into beautiful sculptures.   It’s a beautiful way to give a forgotten book a second life! This unique art is made by folding the pages of a book one by one, with extreme precision and many hours of patience and dedication.  These are truly hand crafted items that could not be produced any other way. Each piece is unique, and can be customized according to special requirements.


These art books make perfect gifts for that special person or occasion such as: weddings, anniversaries, birthday, Mother’s or Father’s  Day, Grandmother’s gift,  graduation, new baby born, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or just as a very special way  to say “I love you”. They can be personalized with names, dates or a special figure (hearts, flower, face profile of a loved one, etc.). The books can be worked in two different ways: as a plain book: just the book and the folded word or design and a little ribbon around it, or can be made with complete embellishment or decoration; lined with nice paper or cloth and embellished with ribbon or lace and little details such as little hearts, keys etc.

It’s your choice!
