I love this idea. Would be good for authors as a promotional kind of thing!

Recently off a gallery show at the Bouy Art Gallery in Kittery Maine, this hand carved book sculpture took the artist (BLW Hart) well over 40 hours of carving. This piece is carved and sculpted into the book itself in exquisite detail. On the front of the book has been affixed an antique wooden frame with frosted textured glass – thru this glass can be witnessed a great mysterious and whimsical story tale! But that is not all – turn this piece around and there is a secret hinged door which when opened reveals a silly little monkey sitting in the tree staring at a delicate crescent moon. This piece is one of a kind and would make a fantastic addition to any serious art collector or as a fabulous gift to someone special. Or just decorate your shelf, table or special spot at home or at the office. The artist is proud to offer this piece on sale to the general public.
