These delightful little books open up into a five pointed star--slide the vintage button on the satin ribbon to fasten it open or closed. Star books can be displayed opened halfway on the shelf, or hung by the ribbon as an ornament open or closed.

This ecofriendly book uses discarded matt board wrapped with an unwanted vintage atlas page of Japan and China for the covers. The inside pages are text pages from vintage children's books so you can be sure the content is family friendly. A small amount of illustration may be present on some of the pages. You can decorate the pages further with photos, your own artwork or little notes of greeting--or leave them as is for the beauty of the structure alone. Perfect for that special someone. The recipient will be delighted!

This listing is for one star book as shown in the first two photos.

Closed: 6 cm square (2.5”)
Open fully: approximately 17 cm (6.5”) across
