About Dilly Dally’s Art

Dilly Dally’s is a husband and wife team that create art using a novel medium — books! In an age of tablets and smartphones, more and more books are taken to landfills.

As a daughter of an author, the artist, Lauren Dykes, grew up with an appreciation for books. She wanted to find a way to give these discarded books a longer shelf life. Collaborating with Chaz Dykes, Dilly Dally’s was created.

By using different techniques, Dilly Dally’s transforms the book pages, creating images, words, and logos into hand-crafted custom art, all the while, telling a story.

These book sculptures are ‘literally’ perfect for any occasion: weddings, birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries are just a few. Have a book lover in your life? Celebrate that affection with a personalized gift.

Dilly Dally’s has been featured on Daytime Morning Show on NBC, won Creative Loafing Magazine’s Critic’s Choice Award, for “Best New Use for Old Books,” and seen on HGTV’s 100 Day Dream Home.

Innovative and creative artistic

As a realtor, I love working with clients and helping them with one of the biggest decisions and investments they will make in life. I love giving a person a gift that’s custom-made just for them. In addition, finding an everyday item like a book and turning it into a piece of art is unique and creates a show piece in a space.

Great gift idea

I feel Dilly Dally’s is truly a great option for those difficult to shop for who seem to have everything, and a great gift idea for weddings, birthday, or holiday gifts. It was the gift she never knew she wanted.

Two books-awesome experiences

I’ve gifted two of Dilly Dally’s books to friends and family members. For the custom one, Dilly Dally worked with me to get the design just right for my friend. The value for these gifts is wonderful, and they are gifts that have made a lasting impression on my loved ones.

Perfectly customized

The book Dilly Dally’s created for me was perfectly customized to what I wanted and the theme of my wedding. It proudly displays on my mantel and everyone who comes over thinks it’s so cool!

Daniel Bueller

Better than Jewelry and Way Less Expensive!

Superb service start to finish from design to final product. No muss, no fuss. I’ve spent way more on other gifts and got way less in terms of success and experience. Perfect if your partner is a book-lover.
