The Bookquet: Literary Sculpture

The Bookquet; a custom made bouquet from the pages of a best-loved book.

A unique and exclusive piece of literary sculpture that lasts forever, the Bookquet is composed of over 50 individual flowers. Each bouquet takes five days to make with every petal intricately cut and folded by hand. The techniques used are inspired by traditional European bookbinding, Japanese origami and silk cut flowers.

Description

Choose two favourite books and Rachel will craft your own personal bookquet. A lead-time of at least four weeks is required.

“Art is about feeling and a connection with those around you. The joy for me is learning about the people I work with, and the books that mean the most to them. As I make each flower, words from the pages leap out at me. Each little flower tells a piece of a wider story, giving clues about the person who commissioned it”. – Rachel Hazell

    We commissioned Rachel to make us a bookquet from the pages of our two favourite books. The finished product was a work of art beyond our expectations. Beautiful, entirely unique and something we will treasure forever.
