Rembrandt Book Bracelet


From Kottke:

Inspired by the online availability of high resolution images from the Rijksmuseum's collection, design firm Duinker and Dochters created a book of 1400 images of hands from Rembrandt's work that is wearable as a bracelet

From the Cooper Hewitt Museum:

Amsterdam-based designers Lia Duinker and Lyske Gais are fascinated by the details Rembrandt achieved in his depiction of hands.


From hundreds of images of Rembrandt's hand illustrations, they created an intriguing book-bracelet, an intricate piece that not only pays homage to the talent of Rembrandt, but also spotlights the genius of Duinker and Gais's skills in graphic design, bookbinding, and jewelry design.


Entitled "Rembrandt's Hands and a Lion's Paw," the book-bracelet is comprised of 1400 miniature pictures of hands derived from 303 Rembrandt etchings and drawings in the collection of the Rijksmuseum and available as high-resolution images on the museum's website.



the bracelet and its box.


What a fantastic little object... you can marvel about how it was made on their website.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

A second clue: moving parts.

A third: not a Polaroid camera from hell.
