pairing art and interior : old world library {bibliothèque}

There’s nothing quite like a day in the Fall spent visiting your favorite book haven. Books in leather bindings, antique tables piled high in unfinished work, sun spilling into the room revealing swirls of dust. Novels just waiting for their pages to be turned.

This papier collé on birch wood depicts the love of settling into your favorite library or bibliothèque. The “wooden nickel,” 14 inches square, 1 5/8 inches deep. Coated in a dense layer of clear gloss resin.

This original artwork is gallery wrapped on all sides revealing detailed illustrations of creatures of all kinds.
