The art of folding words and silhouettes into books is a lovely way to reuse an old, unloved book and turn it into a thoughtful piece of art. Each letter needs a certain amount of pages to be folded, with two folds per page, precise to mm measurements. When done in sequence they produce letters or silhouettes.
No books are harmed in the making of these sculptures!
Each one of these sculptures is a labour of love which needs a really unique gift for book lovers. Every single one is different depending on the book used to fold the word art, the thickness of the leaves, the size of the book, and so on.
This listing is for a silhouette of 2 cats who are facing away from each other so their tails curve around to form a love heart. It is folded in a Readers Digest hardback edition of Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens,. The book cover is green and has a gold patterned border. It really is a gorgeous book!
It would make a perfect gift for a cat lover or a first wedding anniversary, which is Paper!
