Books for HopeBook sculpture for Christmas card design
Books for Hope is a not-for-profit organisation with the aim of changing lives of children in remote and poor villages by building bi-lingual libraries where children are introduced to the outside world through books.
They wanted a Christmas card designed to be sold to raise money to buy more books for its libraries. A series of book sculptures seemed like the best way to show how stories and adventures can come to live through reading books. Old damaged and discarded books were sourced and I created a series of 5 Christmas scenes emerging from an open book. The designs were very well received and made a huge contribution to the funds needed to add more books to their libraries.29
