An entirely handmade book insert, shelf art representing an old library.
This book insert features a fire place I made with balsa wood with logs and a warm led light for fire effect. There is also a main light hanging from the ceiling. Both lights are powered by a small battery pack at the back with a switch to turn them on and off.
There are 2 shelves on one wall and a picture on the other. The fire place, the shelves and the floor are packed with handmade books, scrolls, handwritten papers, and maps, all of which I printed from original vintage books and covers. Some of the books on the shelves and floor are open with handwritten pages that I rescaled from original book pages. All books and papers are aged to give the diorama an old library vintage effect.
There is also a clock on the wall, which I made with strong white card printed with an original vintage clock face.
The box is made with MDF, which I covered with strong brown card and aged to give a leather effect.
