Red Book Pin [metal brooch] foldformed jewelry for bibliophiles

Details

A small book hand-forged from copper and brass sheet, to be worn on the lapel, hat, scarf, or what have you.

A book pin is the perfect gift for librarians, new graduates, writers, book club members, English majors, History majors, booksellers, book artists, book collectors, and bibliophiles of all sorts.

Book pins are 1 inch high, and 1 to 1 inches wide.

Each book pin is unique. We offer them in red, red-orange, and brown), but the colors occur naturally with heating the copper pages during the making of the book, so they are extremely variable - see the many pictures to see some of the variation within each colorway. Use this page to order red book pins.

Each book is hand-scribed so that it appears to have text on the open pages, but no, they don't actually say anything.

Each book pin comes in a jewelry box, on a card with information about our studio.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

We created the book pin not merely because we are bibliophiles ourselves, but because the form evolved naturally out of the process of foldforming. We forge these books one at a time, by folding and hammering two pieces of copper and one of brass all together, forming the spine of the book by hammering in a vice. The book itself is held together entirely mechanically, by the forging process alone, without any solder (though of course the pin back is soldered on). No two will ever be the same.

Materials Used

Brass, copper, nickel pin-back.
