Hip Products: Akina limited edition art book

You'll have to be quick for this one. Celebrated Australian artist Akina has just released her third handmade book. The masterpiece is titled The Little Mermaid and is a riff on the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale, twisted in true Akina fashion. The story is themed around Valentine's Day (perfect timing!) and includes all new artwork and a haunting tale of tragic romance printed on heavyweight art stock.

Each page is lovingly created by hand and the book is finished with beautiful details such as traditional hand-stitched binding, an individual wax seal, an artist’s statement, velvet ribbon, fold out fine art print, a pop up cover, embossed pages and a certificate of authenticity.

As with most Akina pieces, the book is highly collectible. Akina creator Lang Leav has only created 100 numbered copies of this art book making it truly limited edition. Previous Akina art books have sold out immediately. You have been warned!

You can buy The Little Mermaid book only on the Akina Website where you can also read the FAQ's.
