Miniature handmade book - Japan SOLD

This is another 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 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.

The paper which covers front and back of this book shows a line of kimono-clad ladies

with 3 little translucent-pearly hearts stuck onto the front.

This is one of the smallest books and measures 2 inches/5cm approx. wide and tall.

The end papers - inside the front and back covers - are from paper covered with chinese calligraphy

with a little label "whispers of my heart" in the front, cut from remnants of a shopping bag.

The pages are all blank and stitched together by hand, and the book has a ribbon bookmark which is navy blue, with an ornate little metal bead at the end.

We're starting this auction at only $1.85.

The auction begins at 9am on Monday January 11th and will end at 9pm on Sunday January 17th, New York time. The highest bidder before that time will win.
Postage would be: UK - $0.64; Europe - $1.30; Worldwide outside Europe - $2.00.
