This what she made: a clever books-within-book papercraft to explain the Amazon Kindle to Charles Dickens!

    Class assignment: “Explain something modern/internet based to someone who lived and died before 1900” Cardiff School of Art & Design student Rachel Walsh decided she would explain the Amazon Kindle to author Charles Dickens and submitted this project.  She designed 40 miniature books and placed them inside of a hardcover book, a Victorian age metaphor for a portable reader. “I made the book start to finish over five days, and it took about 35 hours to make I reckon. It was pretty painstaking cutting out all the gaps in the book itself, and making the books to go inside. They’re all bound like actual books, so as I waited for them to glue and dry I would design the covers for them. All the covers are copies of real book covers. They include many of Dickens’s novels, his favorite childhood books, and some of my own.”

A Bit of Bees Knees: DIY: Paper Book Covers

little books by Ginette Lapalme

This mixed media necklace combines leather, metal, stained lace, stained paper, rusted mesh, clay and paint. It also has a vintage barrel key and blood red Garnet attached to the end of a 14 inch chain extension which you can wear it in the front. This piece took many hours to construct as each page is lovingly burned by incense and fashioned in a way that the burned hole in the middle of the page tapers towards a blood red heart.

I love this tiny book. SO much creativity!
