An entirely handmade bookend, shelf art representing a library room with fireplace.
I made this bookend using a vintage book "Little Dorrit" by Dickens.
I first glued the pages to create 2 walls and covered them with red wall paper. I made the floor with strong card covered with a floral carpet printout.
The roof is made with cardboard and covered with stained paper.
An open door to the next room with light, bookshelves over the fireplace and the door, an armchair and piles of books and papers on the floor.
It contains many handmade books, scrolls, handwritten papers, envelopes all of which I printed from original vintage books and covers. All books and papers are aged to give the diorama an old library room vintage effect.
The bookend also features a main light with light shade, a fireplace featuring a fire with logs and a door ajar with light coming through.
All the lights can be switched off at the back of the book via a small switch.
