BOOK: Acorn: Children's Book

An large book made for a friend as a 'baby album'.

The center design was a hand-sculpted, fimo acorn that was painted copper and painted oak leaves around it.

The book uses a variety of techniques and elements including a leather spine, corners, paper-cover and added paper decorations.

The oak leaves were cut from card stock and painted to appear 'distressed' and glued to the cover around the center pendant. The pendant, cast from a real acorn, is actually removable from the book - a gift for the little girl for whom the book was made.


The book was approximately a size 5 (9x12) with a pig skin spine, raised cords and protected corners.
