• "Books are the ships which pass through the vast sea of time.”
(Francis Bacon)
I use old, beloved, incomplete or through the time broken books for my book art work and so the forgotten books tell a new story. In the original, I created this acrylic painting with a collage of old book pages on a wooden background. A child reading, the boy uses the power of words and his book becomes his ship. He travels with his book boats through the sea of fantasy and stories.


• Envelope for book lovers:
Your paperboat card from recycled paper comes with a matching envelope from old, long loved book pages to you.
Please note that each envelope is handmade by me individually and will therefore differ from the one in the photo.
