Welcome to Bookart Originals

These unique pop-up books take on average two months to make

These unique pop-up books take on average about two months to make (in excess of 300 hours) and go through ten different stages from dying sheets of watercolour paper with industrial fabric dyes, through the assembly stage of joining hundreds of separate units, to the sculptural spine and ornamental clasp.

The movable structures have no folds. Dovetail joints, interlocking units and paper piano hinges enable greater flexibility of moving parts. In fact, the whole book can be taken to pieces and re-assembled!

Custom made clamshell boxes made by Stephen Conway (Stephen Conway Bindery) to hold these books can be provided at extra cost.
