Bookmark a milestone with this personalized literary art keepsake. Framed in handsome dark wood, the piece features a classic cover of Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy and a customizable "page" that pairs a poignant passage from the book and clever personalized details. Include the recipient's name, a "canto" celebrating the significant number--a birthday age, "1" for new beginnings (graduation and retirement, for example)--and the memorable date. Accented with brilliant metallic detail, this keepsake by Patricia Carlin is a reminder that life is always a page turner. Made in New Jersey.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

Comments about UncommonGoods Divine Comedy Personalized Shadowbox - Milestone:

This was a Valentine's Day present. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the personalized section did not end up as the pictured item. In any event it was just beautiful!
