Turtles, gators, and giraffes, oh my! This miniature handmade book features colorful creatures on its covers.

This book would be perfect for documenting your child's adventures. It could also be a guest book for a baby shower or a playful pocket-sized address book.

Size: 2.5" x 3.5"
Pages: 120
Style: Coptic binding
Uses: baby shower guest book, journal, address book

Binding:
This book was sewn with yellow waxed linen thread in the ancient Coptic binding style, which allows the stitching to become a decorative element on the spine. Pages lay flat when open for easy journaling or sketching.

Papers:
An animal print paper was used for the cover of this book. A recycled paper with a mod orange print was used for the endsheets (inside the covers). A coral-colored handmade paper from Nepal serves as the guards (the paper wrapped around the six sections of pages). The interior pages are made from a smooth white paper. This book is archival and acid free.

You'll receive the exact book shown in this listing.

All books are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly environment.

About the artist:
Katie Gonzalez studied the art of bookmaking in Cortona, Italy during the summer of 2006. Visiting a medieval bindery, working with luxurious materials, and learning to make paper by hand instilled a sense of traditional techniques into her work. She combines that background with her contemporary graphic design degree from the University of Georgia. She lives and works in East Nashville with her husband and her brindle bullmastiff.
