Wearable Books - Gallery
My little books are best experienced in person. They invite a one on one interaction...
to ponder, to wonder, to discover, to reminisce.
Please contact me if you would like to have some of your treasures incorporated into a piece.
Most books are approx 2x3" , ie 5x7.5cm and chain/lanyard is typically 24"
