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. These 21½" tall obelisks have complex interior structures to support their great height, and it takes upwards of 40 precisely cut pieces to construct each one. The charming ball spacers we use in this variant are hand-painted to coordinate with the marbled paper, and add a lovely decorative touch.

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. **GOLD MARBLE AND BLUE/ORANGE MARBLE ARE SOLD OUT**

Our obelisks are sold individually, and the pieces shown in the last image are shown for comparison purposes and are sold separately. Commissions for obelisks in your preferred paper patterns are welcome and we invite you to contact us to learn more.
