Hi everyone !

My name is Karine, I am a french book sculptor living between France and Luxembourg.
I am reading passionate, I love old books and I need to be creative with my hands, so since 2012 I've found my perfect addiction.

Through miniature and intricate 3D paper scenes, i try to give to second hand books another life and way of expression. For me, it's a way to offer the possibility of pursuing the journey, to excite the dream beyond the end of the story.

I find old books on flea markets where I like to go and I choose the one who inspires me the most.
I read it and only after, I try to represent the story, or an important scene, with its own pages. I don't use any other paper because i want to prove than books are rich by themselves and don't need anything else to reveal their treasures. That's my mission !

Everything is small, detailed (i love to give more realism !) and made by hand (no laser cut or punches). I don't reproduce twice the same sculpture (there is so much to explore!) so each sculpture is a unique art piece.
Each one of them requires between 200 and 400 working hours to be complete.

I don't transform any 1st editions, precious books covers, or church books...

I sometimes add LED lighting to emphasize details, increase realism or poetry.
I sometimes use thin wire to support the structure (in my trees for example), but I try to hide them to preserve the illusion of magic.

You will see that my favorite themes are Andersen's tales, fairy, nature and humans feelings but my tastes constantly evolve.

Thanks for visiting and if you are curious about my technique, follow me on Facebook where I share works in progress
and news about exhibitions...

You can also enter my shop (Etsy) to check what I have for sale at the moment.
