Miniature handmade book - purple hearts

Another miniature hand-made book made and given 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 book has purple patterned paper front and back, with little hearts cut out of paper with little tiny hearts spotted all over it....

The covers front and back are made of a mauve and mushroom classical looking print, very lightly varnished and the front is also decorated with the paper hearts, a strip of silk paper and a snippet of text from a 1902 edition of 'The Essayes of Michael Lord of Montaigne' translated by John Floria the third, Vol.2, bought in a charity shop for its beautiful paper and words.

The end papers - inside the front and back covers - are music scores, taken from Christmas cracker hats.

The pages are all blank and hand-stitched together, and the book has a black ribbon bookmark which is finished with little tiny bells.

This book measures approx. wide 1.5. inches/4cm and 2 inches/5cm tall.
