Made of paper, with printed words, lots of pages, full colour cover, and in some cases illustrations


Welcome to Molly's Literary Emporium - the bookshop within a shop! These tiny, handmade 1;12 scale books contain real pages, filled with real text and, in some cases, illustrations too.

They would make a wonderful keepsake, mascot or gift for someone special and are ideal for stocking dollhouse and roombox bookshelves and libraries, although we think they look best standing open, so that the detail can be seen.

The books all contain original texts and are handmade, so finish and size will vary slightly, but they measure approximately 2 - 2.5 cm or 0.75 to 1 inch in height.
Read the descriptions below and select the title/s you would like at checkout.

JOURNAL: A few pages of this delicate little book have been filled in by her Ladyship, in blue ink and in cursive style. The rest are blank, so far... Cover designs vary for this title.

MOLLY BY HERSELF: A young girl's illustrated account of how she found her perfect job - reading books! (This title is also available as a do-it-yourself book for digital download elsewhere in The SteampunkDollsHouse)

THE TIME-TRAVELLER'S COMPANION (LONDON EDITION): An invaluable guide for any temporal traveller and a potted history of London. (This title is also available as a do-it-yourself book for digital download elsewhere in The SteampunkDollsHouse)

THE VITAL CHAPTER: A novel in which a huge change occurs in Algernon's life. However a vital chapter has mysteriously disappeared! In your copy it will consist of several blank pages. You can choose to leave them that way or cut them out (as shown in the illustration).

GRIMOIRE: A hand-aged ancient book of spells and charms with illustrations. The cover of this beautiful volume was created and supplied under licence by the Chocolate Rabbit store on Etsy

HEART OF GLASS: Bjorn's tragic story of how his brain and heart were 'enhanced' by the mad genius Oskar Kopp. With illustrations.

THE DIARY OF A TINKERER: Henry's illustrated tale of how he finally escaped being caught in the year 2017, after a time travelling accident.

PROFESSOR ERAZMUS'S GIFTS: The kindly professor watches over his wards on his mysterious Scrying Machine and selects festive gifts for each of them.

In some cases the text can be read with the naked eye or a good magnifying glass. The zoom on a camera phone works well, too. The texts of all the books can be found in the Blog section at

The little bookshop itself is not for sale. It travels with us to miniatures fairs and steampunk conventions so that customers can buy books directly from Molly, the tiny bookseller!
