I was enticed to explore the genre of wearable books by a dear friend who requested one from me. It had been at the back of my mind to one day make my own version of what seems to be quite popular among some bookbinders: a book pendant. It was natural that I’d make such a piece of jewellery in a very ‘talismanic’ style. I set out to make three, in order to explore various possible structures and details. In all of the three here, the page size is approximately 50x50mm (2″x2″) and the pendants are light enough to be comfortably worn around the neck.
