Description

Book Hair Pin, Miniature book hairpin with vintage classic tiny book!

The 1812 novel 'The Swiss Family Robertson' by Johann David Wyssis is the ultimate shipwreck survival story, a family find themselves alone on a deserted island and amidst many adventures with wildlife and pirates, they build a paradise for themselves whilr living in a treehouse with many clever inventions.

This miniature book brooch made from a vintage book cover and spine miniaturised as a book lover's vintage fashion accessory

Size: the book dimensions are approx 2cm x 1.5cmwide.

The image is of a real used book, little creases and imperfect patina are intentional and part of the 'well-loved and well-read charm'. The front/back plate and spine have been glued around a firm foam card core (the books have no contents and are sealed shut).

Note: Because of the tiny size of these miniature books some of the smallest wording may not be readable; the mini books are designed to give an impression of the original but are not exact replicates.

Being made of cardboard and paper these brooches are not waterproof.

The book is fixed to a metal pad on the nice strong hairpin with industrial adhesive.

Perfect as a Teacher or librarian gift or for anyone who grew up on and loved these books, or loves quirky vintage styling.

Multiple Buys Save on Postage: these items are very lightweight, and I'm very happy to combine multiple similar items at no extra postage costs, let me know what you'd like to order and I'll put them together in a custom listing for you!
