Super Sized Scottish Thistle
I create this stunning piece by making over a thousand individual 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 stag's head by handfolding each page, to an accuracy of around half a millimetre. I don't cut, laser or other wise damage the book; it is completely un-harmed.
Superior Scottish Thistle is based on its wee sister, THISTLE which you can see alongside in the second picture, for an idea of scale
A real conversation piece of art ♥
Created by carefully hand folding the pages of a preowned or vintage book.
Photos shown are of past pieces, most of which have gone to their new forever homes. I create this art within the pages of pre-owned & vintage books, therefore each item is unique and exact colours and final appearances naturally vary from book to book.
