Danny Champion of the World book sculpture

Danny Champion of the World book sculpture, based upon the children's novel by Roald Dahl.
 I used a lovely edition of the book from the late 1970s that I picked up for almost nothing on ebay. I was able to use the illustrations from the book in the sculpture.
 The gypsy caravan is crafted from paper with an LED light inside,

Watership Down altered book sculpture

 This book sculpture is my adaptation of the novel 'Watership Down' by Richard Adams.
 I wanted to use the characters as depicted in the 1978 animated film version as I have very strong childhood memories of it.
 I hope I have managed to encapsulate several of the key scenes and the overall 'feel' of the novel and film.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner book sculpture

 This book sculpture is a commission piece based on the poem 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
 The customer's main brief was that she wanted the ship in stormy seas and ice-bergs. The albatross was on her desired but not required list, but I think it makes the piece to have it circling the ship.
