A ring of Fairy Tales

A ring is a traditional gift for graduation (so my parents told me). My Mum and Dad presented me with a beautifully wrapped book size gift. Inside was a Folio Society edition of the Grimm's fairy Tales illustrated by Arthur Rackham. I have always hankered after a folio book but they are pricey.

When I opened up the book however, inside was a surprise...someone had cut into it!
What transpires is my Mum and Dad ordered a bespoke 'Literary Jewel' from Artist Jeremy May of Little Fly
It's an amazing piece, I have compressed fairy tales on my finger, I love it!

My 'dainty' artist hands (hah!)
