MX Publishing was the world's first publishing company to be 100% 'on-demand' - meaning that we print all our books worldwide to order. We have the largest catalogue of Sherlock Holmes books in the world at over 400 - with many new titles every month.
We're proud of our environmental credentials and in February launched our #bookstotrees campaign where we will plant a tree in Kenya (at Happy Life Children's Home, one of our supported projects) for every book we sell on this site.
So when we discovered these wonderfully detail Sir Arthur Conan Doyle busts that are also printed on-demand, we reached straight out to the supplier to get more details.
They are made to order using a marble and bronze PLA, giving it a realistic stone look and a surprise whenever someone picks it up to discover it's actual weight. It is more durable than alabaster or plaster, and is washable with lukewarm soapy water for easy spring cleaning. It comes on a custom plinth that has his lifetime on the front, and the quote:
"Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius"
It stands 7 inches tall, about 3.5 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. You can order them here - Arthur Conan Doyle Bust.
