Can you bottle a love poem? Well, technically — yes. That’s what artist Ros Rixon has done in her Love Lines series, in which delicate cutouts of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43 are captured in bottles and boxes for art and ease of gifting. Rixon’s work, spotted via Book Patrol, also encompasses other forms of book sculpture, taking different texts and forms as inspiration. Check out some of Rixon’s great sculptures after the jump, and then be sure to head on over to her website for more.
