Your favourite classic books, now in wearable brooches

Bookworms, now you can wear your favourite passages from your favourite books on your favourite clothes! These handmade brooches are crafted by London-based artist Sarah, of House of Ismay. They’re constructed from reclaimed wood and covered with original – though worn out – pages from all your classic reads, such as Alice in Wonderland, Of Mice and Men, and even Lord of the Flies. Sarah has a degree in Book Arts, too, so it looks like she’s taken her degree quite literally!
