For the love of Golden Books

OK, this is perhaps the coolest example of altered book art and upcycling I’ve ever seen. It’s a storybook gown constructed entirely out of recycled and discarded children’s Golden Books. Click here to view the pictures. It’s completely stunning.

From the description:

The skirt is comprised entirely of the illustrations from the books sewn together with metallic gold thread, and the bodice is made from the books’ foil spines. Both the bodice and skirt have tape backing for reinforcement.

Tip of the Cubs cap to Rae-Anne Montague for posting the link on Facebook.
