Book Art

Postby ShiofNarnia » Mon Jan 27, 2014 9:28 pm

So this is an idea I saw on etsy, and decided to make one of my own. I chose The Silver Chair cause it's my favorite of the Narnia books. This is basically finished. I may add some more pages in the back to make it thicker, and then it will go in a shadowbox. (Sorry about the glare on the close-up pictures.)

Lovely! I wish I had the patience to do something like that!

I don't think there could be any other word to fit this but---WOW!
Shi, that is amazingly beautiful and certainly looks like you spent a great deal of time putting it together!
About how tall is it?

Thanks Albero :)

Thank you Ella! It didn't take too long. :) Most of the process of cutting and ripping I did at a few different times (I bought two books specifically for this purpose) and when I sat down to put it together it took me a few hours. It's about 7 1/2 inches tall. (As tall as the books was.)

I'm sure it would have taken me much longer than a few hours to create something like that. So I applaud you for that. Anyway, it truly is a great piece of art but as beautiful as it is I don't think I would be able to cut up any of my books to try to do something similar... :P

Thanks. :)
Haha my sister was kind of upset (not seriously, but you know) watching me tear it apart. But I bought them specifically for that reason, so I didn't actually take a book I had and do that. :)

Oh, and I had put it together once before (without glueing or anything), and had taken a picture, so I used that as a guide when I actually went to stick everything together. (I used glue and some little pop-out adhesive things.)

@Shi: I would have been right there with your sister on that. :P But the result is so cool, I don't think I can really complain. :D
