Emma Taylor’s Intricate Sculptures Of Birds Made From Antiquarian Books

These delicate sculptures of birds rise from the pages of the books that inspire them. They are designed by Emma Taylor and are part of a series called From Within a Book….

Emma works with antiquarian books, using strips of vintage book pages, wire and wadding to create the birds. She says “To me the possibility of the end of the book is a tragic one; I appreciate books as an object as much as I enjoy the stories and knowledge which they hold.”

You can buy photographic prints of the book sculptures Emma creates at her Etsy shop.
