Book sculpture made from an early 20th century copy of the Atlas Quillet - Le Monde Français - published in Paris in 1929 by Librairie Arisitide Quillet.

I have selected a number of maps from the book and arranged them in such a way they appear in 3D and form a beautiful and colourful shape.

It measures 45cm x 23.5cm x 4.5cm.

The book cannot be opened any more but it stands on its own (or it can be hung on a wall with the ribbon I have solidly fitted at the back), the colours are on permanent display and it makes an original and unusual object. Great idea for the person who is interested in maps, France or who simply has everything.

Born and raised in Paris, with a publisher for a father, I have always loved books, for their content of course but also for what they look or even smell like. I am not academically trained as an artist (I am a headhunter by day) but I have also always loved making things. I moved to London in 1994 and over the last few years, I have been collecting old books (and sometimes new ones) that either look good to me or will tell a story, very often different from their original content. I try to give some of those really old or unloved books a new life and a new purpose. I have a preference for illustrated books, some of the ones we very rarely open.I love bringing the inside permanently outside, for everyone to see and enjoy. And when a book has nothing particular to say or show, apart from a good binding, I make a sculpture that will hopefully turn out appealing to most people. If not, I like them anyway...
