Vintage Typewriter Key Bracelet with Original Illustrations

The artworks I created recently for Gulliver's Travels, have been encased in vintage glass typewriter keys. I affixed the keys onto a silver bracelet with a toggle clasp. I sold the first on on ebay. I had planned to continue making these, but haven't had the time to search for more antique typewriter keys to do a new one.

If I had to make a list of six books which were to be preserved when all others were destroyed, I would certainly put Gulliver's Travels among them.’ — George Orwell

In short:

The book of Gulliver's Travels comprises four different travels. In the first, Gulliver narrates how he happened to shipwreck on Lilliput Island, where its inhabitants were only six inches tall. In the second voyage, Gulliver and other mariners reach the shores of Brobdingag, the country of giants. In the third part, we find Gulliver's most satirical voyage to the Flying Island of Laputa. Eventually Gulliver narrates his fourth and last voyage to the country of Houyhnhnms.
