Our book themed wedding.
Book centerpieces, complete with tiny clay book charms and an ungodly amount of book page confetti, book mark programs, book page bouquets and boutonnières, butterfly book pages as a cake topper, library check out cards as place cards, book page garland, et cetera, et cetera.
Bonus details: Processional song was “Neville’s Waltz” from HP & The Goblet of Fire, and our first dance was “Book of Love” covered by Nataly Dawn.
Nicholas Jones born 1974 in UK, is an international book sculptor based in Melbourne Australia. He completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1997, Master of Fine Art at RMIT University in 2001 and a Graduate Diploma of Education at The University of Melbourne in 2003.
Nicholas Jones aims at highlight- ing the poetic nature of the book as a form. From his tiny Melbourne studio, he stacks, folds, tears, cuts and sews book leaves, transforming books into works of art, small sculptures that question the way books are read. Like a surgeon examin- ing and reorganizing body tissue, armed with a scalpel, Jones readdresses the book’s tissue – paper – dissecting unwanted books, casting a new light on books as an everyday commodity.
