Les Saints de Montparnasse – 60 euro each

This book was inspired by a 16th century Spanish Reliquarium that can be seen at the V&A museum in London.For each portrait I created a possible back story, all based in interbellum Montparnasse. Thus, on the back cover I embroidered the name and occupation of each character.

Materials used: red velvet (from a recycled skirt bought at the flea market in Blackrock, Dublin), vintage photographs, golden thread, golden embossing paste, red silk, card for the interior pages, organza ribbon
