Description

Book Hair Pin, Miniature book hairpin with vintage classic children's Golden Book 'Tawny Scawny Lion'.

I've been making a few different styles of these miniature book, this style has up-recycled vintage book pages contents which enables the book to lie 'open' (random book pages are used for fill, print not miniaturised or for designed for actual reading)

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!
