In 2010, Italian-American artist and designer Ryan Jude Novelline created the Golden Book Gown—he was just 20 years old at the time! The gorgeous paper skirt is made entirely of recycled and discarded illustrated pages from the classic children’s Little Golden Book series.
The signature foil spines of this beloved picture book series were used to create the intricate bodice. Talk about a work of art!
