Antique Collectibles Handcarved Book Sculpture

"Collectibles"
9.25" x 11.25"x 3/4" Book Art
Definitely a unique ONE OF A KIND 3D work of art!

If you have ever been interested in old things that people collect you will enjoy the wide variety of images revealed in the "Encyclopedia of Collectibles".
First it is sealed shut and then, using delicate knives,scissors, and tweezers,
I carve into into the book, one page at a time, to reveal its hidden treasures.
Nothing is moved from its original location in the book. It takes a lot of time, patience and a steady hand but the end result is a detailed 3D view of the inside and "new" life to an old outdated and unwanted book.
A clear sturdy acrylic panel is placed under the front cover to protect it from the elements. There is a notched hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall or placed in a small book stand.
