• A special gift idea for book lovers:
In a room of books and words, two children discover through a book window. Whether the little boy in the story is in the book ... or whether the girl looked at him reading books in the story remains unclear. But both know for sure: books are a window into another world. A portal to the realm of literature where dreams come true from paper.


• "Old books carried the scent of adventure, both their own and those they contained. Good books exuded an aroma that carried everything, including a hint of magic.”"
(Kai Meyer, The Pages of the World)
I love books, especially Kai Meyers. When working on the original collage I have always ... .and again and again ... listened to the audiobook of the pages of the world. While I glued the small bits of differently yellowed book pages, I had this quote in mind. Especially when I opened a particularly old and broken book and flowed this magical scent. After I had glued the individual yellowed snips, I drew the details of the reading boy with pencil. Book Art is an upcycling variant for almost forgotten books and lets the book pages tell a new story, a tribute to the power of books. The photographed collage has now become an literary art print, waiting to its journey to you.


• Passe-partout for Bibliophiles:
Your art print will be sent to safely, without frame or decoration, in a handmade book-page passe-partout. Please note: Your passe-partout will from the one on the foto, because I make every passe-partout individually with different book pages.
