When you think of "Book Art" what comes to mind? At Etsynch, we recently had the pleasure of featuring NovelExpression, book art by Tiffany Adams based out of Orlando, Florida. Adams designs are unique in such that each book is neatly folded to form words or symbols (see images below). These books are personalized for someone's home or office and make great gifts for book lovers. One can custom order their favorite book and have their name or initials designed on their book of choice. Wouldn't it be nice to decorate your office with one of these fabulous books? Imagine displaying your family name above the fireplace mantel or entryway. NovelExpression book art is the perfect gift for weddings, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays and any holiday for that matter. They are so unique and timeless!

If you think these books are neat, you might also love the "Book to Big Screen Collection" featuring themes from favorite books that became movies such as Hunger Games, Divergent, Pride & Prejudice and Jurassic Park. These are excellent for fans who truly appreciated reading these books and watching the film on a big screen!
Did you see the movie but didn't read the book? Well...NovelExpression also sells DIY Kits from the Big Screen Collection so that you can read the book, create your own beautiful folded book art, and share in spreading the love! Adams has been folding books for over two years and truly enjoys seeing the reaction on someone's face when she shows her art or gives them as gifts. Imagine how fun it would be to share in her experience and give this gift to family and friends. NovelExpression gifts are beyond words and we are extremely happy to feature this shop today!

What inspired Adams to open her shop?
“I have always had the heart of an entrepreneur and love handmade products. I love Etsy because of the vast variety of creativity I always seem to find. I wanted to create something unique and share it with others, so that is why I created my shop. There are other Folded Book Art shops out there, but I feel relating the actual book to the sculpture is so important and what makes my shop unique. I also love to keep the integrity of the book in tact, so I don’t include changes to the covers or add embellishments that take away from the authenticity of the book and the readers experience. ”
What is her biggest challenge?
“The craft of Folded Book Art or Book Origami is unique in the fact that most of your time is spent in the set up and preparation of the book. You spend several hours finding the right edition of the book (yes, this really matters), then creating patterns and then measuring and preparing it to be folded into a unique sculpture. Even if you think you have it right, it can easily turn out illegible or boring. It can take several tries to get a great pattern on a book…(I may have a stack of misfit folded book art sitting in a corner somewhere). I think that’s why I love NovelExpressions “Read and Transform” collection, DIY Kits. All of that process is done for you so that the book can be enjoyed and then so easily folded to something beautiful. ”
