“The Sandman: Book One” by Neil Gaiman
This book carving is completely one of a kind. I will not repeat images. What you see are the actual pages in the book. My process is to take away pages or portions of pages. This is all done by hand...xacto blades, tweezer and my glasses.
The outside of the book is bound (glued) shut so that it is one solid piece. Cover cannot be opened.
This is the first graphic novel that I have worked with. It is also distinct from my other carvings because it is not a hardcover. I felt comfortable carving it because of its thickness. I love Neil Gaiman’s work and decided to seek out this collaboration after watching the Netflix series.
Can be displayed on any shelf, table, mantle, dresser, etc...
