Bookworm

For this piece I took inspiration from an altered book sculpture by Kaylen False (which is an excellent name for an artist) and from the ongoing and myriad paper art posted at Ann Martin's blog, All Things Paper.





I made this bookworm as a gift for some friends who own a bookstore in Germany. The worm is quilled from strips I cut from the of the pages of the book. The rest of the embellishments are leftover bits and pieces of quilling I collected from other quilling projects.

I'm proud to say that the Bookworm now lives at the bookstore LeseZeichen in Kronach, Germany.

By the way...
If you need a gift for someone who likes cooking, world cuisine or travel, get them a copy of my book, A Travel for Taste - Collected Czech Family Recipes.  It really DOES make a great holiday gift and it’s under $10! Available in paperback and Kindle versions. Email me if you would like a PDF version. Free iPod or iPad app with every purchase!
