Inexpensive gift for book lovers, writers, editors, etc

I LOVE book sculptures. When they’re done well, they are beautiful, intricate, and show the incredible beauty and imagination of books. Su Blackwell is my top favorite book sculptor. How I wish I could afford one of her book sculptures! I love to look at her works–they are everything I just said–beautiful, intricate, and speak to the magic of books. I could look at them all day long.

And now I–and any other book lover–can, through Su Blackwell’s greeting cards. She has created greeting cards with photos of her book sculptures on the covers. They are 3.50 pounds each, which comes to about $5.50 US–or 15.00 pounds for her collection of 6 designs.

These make an incredible gift to a book lover. You could frame them, just have them loose, or use them as a card to write something meaningful in.

My absolute favorite is her Wild Flowers (pictured below). She also has The Illustrated Book of Birds, Alice In Wonderland, Peter Pan, and more! …Excuse me, I’m going to go order some. (smiling)

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011).
