I am currently working on a new series of miniature books.
These two were the first. Not glued, no mull - just bare.
I have always loved seeing books at this stage.
This one I covered with parts of a vintage Egyptian leather wallet,
along with some old lace I had.
Then I made more, which I covered.
And I didn't stop there.
This little series will be part of my Etsy restock in about one week.
I love returning to this original binding method which was incidentally the second method I was taught to do. The first was Coptic stitching with hard covers - the rest, I am self taught.
I would take books apart and sew them back together over and over, until they nearly fell to pieces.
So after driving down the old gravel road,
I settle in my little cabin at night,
by the salt lamp and fire,
Looking forward to sharing these final creations with you all very soon.
