Red Book Pin [metal brooch] foldformed jewelry for bibliophiles
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 1¼ to 1½ 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.
