A massive fan of steampunk, working from a steampunk inspired library/office, surrounded by steampunk décor, sat on an oxblood red Chesterfield Cap'n's chair, at my Victorian desk, drinking pints of tea - I spend many a day resisting the urge to create only steampunk inspired art.
Anyhoo. Here we have some cogs. You know what they are. I love cogs. Especially brass ones. These cogs aren't brass - but they have been hand folded within the pages of a pretty darned cool book! I can't guarantee to always have this exact title to hand, but I will always use one of this ilk for this design.
I create these by carefully hand folding the pages of a book. No trickery, no glue, no cutting. No Books Were Harmed In The Making Of This.
Photos shown are of past pieces, most of which have gone to their new forever homes.
Exact colours and final appearances naturally vary from book to book.
