Miniature handmade book - Haiti map SOLD

Pat has sent some more of her miniature hand-made books to made4aid by Pat of Passion@work

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.

This is a Haiti map book - the covers front and back are made from a map of Haiti, taken from an old School atlas, with a snippet added from a 1902 edition of 'The Essayes of Michael Lord of Montaigne' translated by John Floria the third, Vol.2, bought for its beautiful paper and words - both of these now given a different kind of life in aid of Haiti relief.

The covers are very lightly varnished

The pages are all blank and hand stitched together, and the book has a turquoise/aqua ribbon bookmark which is finished with some little bells from an old hippie skirt .

The book measures approx. 2 inches/5cm wide and 1.75 inches/4.5cm tall.
