This listing is for one single-subject silhouette, cut from a page from a vintage or antique book.
The perfect gift for any bibliophile!
We cut silhouettes in the traditional style- there is no drawing, tracing, or digital alteration involved in our work. Using only paper and scissors, we freehand cut an accurate likeness within minutes, just as artisans did in the eighteenth century.
When adding this listing to your cart, be sure to select either a page from an adult book or children's book, to be used when cutting your portrait. If you'd like a page from a specific title, please contact us. We are happy to do our best to accomidate your request!
Each silhouette will be sent to you signed by the artist, dated, and mounted on 4x6 matte black silhouette paper.
