Ele uses old books to create scale models of clients' homes or other buildings that hold a special place in their heart. These have included grand country houses, cosy log cabins, churches and thatched cottages. The buildings can be made from any books that are important to the client, such as hymn books, special story books or guide books, plus sheet music and maps. They are then lit from within by tiny, battery powered LED lights, all set within deep box frames.
The finished light boxes make unique and special gifts: a magical little scene captured behind glass which are popular as birthday, anniversary, christening and wedding presents.
Ele is happy to consider all sorts of designs, so please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your idea. Prices start at £400 for a simple design and please allow 4-5 weeks for Ele to complete a commission.
