The Art of The Book

Littlefly literary jewelry by  British artist Jeremy May, is created “by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewelry re-inserted in the excavated space…. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces–giving a tantalizing glimpse of the book within.”
