An entirely handmade bookend, shelf art representing an old library with fireplace.
I made this bookend using a vintage book "The Dog Crusoe And His Master".
I first glued the pages to create 2 walls and covered them with vintage wall paper. I made the floor with strong card covered with a wooden floor printout and a printout of a small rug.
The roof is made with balsa wood and covered with stained paper.
It features 3 vintage pictures on the walls, bookshelves over the fireplace 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 vintage effect.
The bookend also features a main light with metal light shade and a fireplace made with balsa wood featuring a fire.
The fire and the main light can be switched off at the back of the book via a small switch.
