I am a bookbinder, so when I found about this new art trait, I was hooked. Old textbooks, upcycled as décor items. Pages folded to create readable words or patterns. The possibilities are endless.
The books used are vintage legal Greek books, dated at about 1940-1950. Their pages have the yellowish color of old vintage books, which adds to the magic of the final product. I treat the covers with special waxes and mediums to preserve them and give them back their natural lustre.
The final piece will catch the eye of everyone around it. It is a great conversation item and a unique home or office décor.
This folding can be your name, your child's name or any word like home, dream, love, laugh, pray, faith, shine, change, family etc.
This book is perfect gift that will be discussed for years.
