WeddingDressBooks

 

I came across this image while browsing St. Mary's Public Library Pinterest board. The dress was custom-made from 2500 pages of multiple issues of ANGELA CARTER'S BOOK OF FAIRY TALES a few years ago for Litfest, a UK literary event. The dress designer usually creates bridal gowns! You can see the full dress and find out more about how it was created in this Jennifer Pritchard Bridal Design blog post.
