These are tiny bonsai trees built out of repurposed books, resized and rebound. The ones pictured are EXAMPLES of trees I have built in the past and are not the exact trees for sale (these guys live in NYC!) Trees stand about 4 inches tall on a book pedestal.The leaves are fringes of text.
An approximately 3 inch sculpture with miniature book will have a base price with material fees added on.
All sculptures are treated with a UV and moisture protectant, but they are indeed delicate and not waterproof.
Custom work is really exciting to me and I will update you every step of the process. Message me and let's work together on your own custom book sculpture!
Work commences upon payment and most sculptures can be completed within 3-4 weeks (often sooner!) depending on the individual orders. Holiday time frames will vary, according to my work load.
Domestic shipping will go out through FedEx or USPS and will having tracking information provided. All packages are insured.
International shipping will be processed through USPS
There may be a fee affiliated with customs for international orders. This is not prepaid and is the buyer's responsibility in their respective country.
I will gladly refund payment for any sculpture that arrives damaged do to insufficient packaging. Each package is carefully wrapped to ensure safe transit and inside are detailed instructions for how to remove the sculpture from the wrappings. Please notify me within 2 business days of any damage incurred in shipping, with a picture of the damage and the box in which it arrived.
These sculptures are all one-of-kind handmade works of art. They are delicate and will vary in shape and size. Some elements of the sculpture may seem flexible or able to be slightly manipulated, but this is not recommended. The text strips are easily ripped or damaged with manipulation. No refunds will be issued for damage incurred through manipulation.
Any custom work involves as much communication with the buyer as they desire, including status reports and photos of work progress. Because of this, I cannot offer refunds on custom work.
