"Your Library is your Portrait" ~ Holbrook Jackson 

It reflects our interests even after we are long gone and it inspires our followers to pick up a volume and discover new worlds. This abandoned library, once a place of learning is filled with books, art and more. The setting is framed by stained glass windows that will reflect a beautiful colorful light over the interior when the sun shines in. However at nighttime, when you turn on the flickering lights, the chandelier illuminates the scene by giving it a haunted look. The books in the shelves do not open, however books that are in a fixed open position display beautiful pages from real antique books. Open the lid and look inside to discover all the wonders this abandoned library has to offer. 

All items are handmade making this a truly one of a kind gift for anyone who loves books, libraries, haunted and abandoned places. Size 15cm high x 11cm deep x 20cm wide (7.87" x 4.33" x 5.91") You can read how I made this diorama here
