The work of House of Ismay, an Etsy shop founded by London-based Sarah, will steal book lovers' hearts instantly. It is mainly comprised of adorable brooches that have been cut out of classic novels including 'Of Mice and Men,' 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' and 'Lord of the Flies.' But what makes House of Ismay's accessories especially precious are the forms they take on.

Inspired entirely by the books they are made out of, House of Ismay shapes the cutout texts in rabbits, birds, hearts and more to represent the common symbol of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass,' 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and 'Pride and Prejudice,' respectively. The artist writes, "Using recycled and reclaimed vintage materials helps to create products that have an instant feeling of history and familiarity."
