Our handmade obelisks are meticulously engineered and handmade to order in our bindery. We begin with hand-cut archival bookbinders' boards which are pieced together and jacketed in stunning patterned paper. This design features a wonderfully architectural stepped base and a hand-painted wooden ball finial. The obelisk shown here is jacketed in Pentreath & Hall paper from England, available via special order along with hundreds of other papers from around the world.

We're delighted to offer a new series of stunning limited edition hand-marbled papers for use in our obelisks, made expressly for Parvum Opus by fantastic marbling artists in England and Brazil. Each sheet is a unique work handmade using centuries-old techniques. These are listed under 'Group 3' below and are available at an additional fee. **SORRY, BLUE/ORANGE MARBLE IS SOLD OUT**

Our obelisks are sold individually. Commissions for obelisks in your preferred paper patterns are welcome and we invite you to contact us to learn more.
