Little "friendship" books - No. 2 'Italy' SOLD

This is the 2nd of the miniature hand-made books given to made4aid by Pat - you can see the first here, with a bit more info. about Pat.

These delightful and whimsical little miniatures are made from recycled materials and found items as much as possible - old maps, stamps, bits and pieces of paper, ribbon and beads.
They are perfect for little gifts or keepsakes, with or without words which might be added - poems - lists - messages - photos.

Some of them might be a suitable guage to be used as doll's house "coffee table" books.

If you would like a custom-made book for yourself, a friend, or a doll's house please let us know - Pat has offered to make custom-designed books to your own requirements.

This book I been calling "Italy" - though the covers front and back actually are more Eastern with some women in kimonos, there is an Italian stamp on the front, from a childhood stamp album - with a Renaissance drawing of a woman's head. There is also a little pink heart on the front which really nicely picks out the pink in the kimonos.

This is one of the smallest books

and measures approx. 1.24 inches/ 3.25cm wide and 1.75 inches/ 4.5cm tall.

The end papers - inside the front and back covers - are made from paper with chinese characters.

The pages are all blank, and the book has a pink ribbon bookmark which is finished with a little spherical metal rose bead.
