This is a handmade bronze astronomy book locket. Inspired by the Voyager Golden Record, this book pendant includes blank pages and pages from vintage astronomy literature (4 pages total).
I design and make these books in my studio; Each one has subtle differences and will vary slightly when compared with the above photos. So you can rest assured that you'll be receiving a one-of-a-kind creation, created to maintain a weathered and distressed character that will continue to develop with age.
Your book is also accompanied by a card signed and dated with your book's date of creation completion.
Your book can be customised with a personal message on the first page of the book (up to 70 characters including spaces).
If there are further customisations you would like for your book, please let me know and we can discuss designing & creating a bespoke book for you or a dear friend. I treasure these collaborations! : )
Your book comes sealed within a small box, tucked within a 'we the sciencey' cotton drawstring bag, and nestled inside a larger box with your typewritten name and address. This larger box is then put within the actual mailing parcel. If the book is a gift, please let me know in the 'Notes' section during checkout if you'd like to have something else typewritten on the book's box.
