London-based company House of Ismay create fantastic handmade classic book page brooches which are made using original pages of worn out books, damaged maps and unwanted scraps of wood sourced from local businesses. House of Ismay was set up by Art History graduate Sarah Pounder in 2008 after selling the brooches on Brick Lane markets. Each brooch is made to directly correspond to the book’s subject matter with the key passages pasted directly onto the wooden shape – an ideal present for a bookworm.
