• hand folded book art from the heart of Moray, Scotland •
  • "Atlas" artistic impression of a map of the world : : Perfect gift for the explorer, traveller, mariner, nautical fan in your life ♥


    The silhouette  of the globe, the Atlas, the map of the world.

    By far and away the largest/longest/most time consuming piece in the No Books Were Harmed.co.uk catalogue, I create these very special, very limited pieces by carefully hand folding the pages of a very, very, thick book!

    Due to the enormous books required to achieve this level of detail, combined with the many hours of exhausting work, "Atlas" is perhaps my nemesis piece of work.  The end result is (in my humble opinion) stunning.  I could (and do) stare at it for ages, pondering every fold and marvelling at what books can do ♥  And, each time (only two thus far), I seriously consider never making another.  You're reading this, so, once again, I must have decided to leave it in my catalogue.  The 'next time' may well be the last time - this time may well be the last time. I really don't know!  It's such a labour of love this beast, I just don't know....!  

    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
