Description

A miniature book of quotation and a teeny version of one of my larger volumes for all the lovers of miniature, like me! It is my version of a Book of Hours . I have used the border illustration from the Horae ad usum Romanum, called Great Hours of Anne of Brittany , an amazing volume illuminated by Jean Bourdichon. The original is viewable at the National Library of France.I have sewn it using coptic stitching, a traditional method of bookmaking. The text is a variety of quotation that has inspired me over the years, and includes Tolstoy, D H Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, Simone Weil, amongst others.
It has eight signatures, each of 4 pages, hand bound and coptic stitched. It would make an ideal writers gift or artists gift. ..and then there's Mother's Day Around the corner.

This example has been sold, and the covers vary as each is made to individual order. Please tell me by convo if you would like an inscription inside the book .


A companion volume of equally tiny proportions can be found here http://etsy.me/1Mu8UkQ

I am always delighted to work to commission and you can read reviews of commissions in the shop reviews page.

Some things that customers have said about my handmade books ;

"This is a creation to be treasured, many, many thanks" Wendi

"It arrived today and it is lovely!! Quality is great and I love the feel of the cover...just want to stroke it!!" Carol Burns
