Beautiful Book Sculptures for Proposals, Weddings, Anniversaries & More

Luciana Frigerio is a photographer turned paper sculptor who is selling delicate yet bold works of love made from recycled books. She crafts each one of her “paper works” by hand in one week, folding and cutting the pages of books into affectionate expressions that stand as a monument to feeling. Her book sculptures can be used in so many different capacities, yet they all convey an intimacy that comes from the personal nature of their intent and creation. Step into Frigerio’s romantic world of words and books:
