The Bibliophile Collection
Super Sized Frigate

I create this stunning piece by making almost one thousand folds, by hand, into the wafer thin pages of a huge Encyclopedia Britannica. 

With its classic, black, padded cover, complete with thistle emblem on the front,  these, almost obsolete books, are true works of art in their own right.   As with all of my work, I create this striking frigate / pirate / sailing ship by handfolding each page, to an accuracy of around half a millimetre.  I don't cut, tear, laser or other wise damage the book, and it is completely un-harmed and readable, should you desire. 

There is a smaller version of this available here 
A real conversation piece of art ♥  

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.
