Mim's Knitting Frenzy

Follow the dark and skeery path into the dank recesses of Miriam's mind. There you will find many a knitting needle and the occasional ominous crochet hook. Sinister looking book presses and towering stacks of paper. Where various handcrafts lurk waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting...

Mini Books Post

And here's another shot for scale.
They would make lovely ornaments and I can string some metallic thread through the binding to hang them from if you're so interested. They'd also be lovely for dolls, dollhouses or shadowboxes. They'd make great presents for the librarian or booklover in your life!

Each book is handcrafted by myself to exacting standards. They are each 1 and 5/8" tall, by 1 and 1/8" wide and 3/8" thick. These are the colors I have had time to make so far. I have alot of other colors of bookcloth, so if you've got something in mind, feel free to e-mail me with any questions.

The pages of each tiny book are carefully folded and sewn together with linen thread to make a bookblock. Then the bookblock is encased in acid free board covered with Cialux bookcloth using Acid Free and very durable glue. If you're interested in purchasing any of them or special ordering some in a specific color (or colors) e-mail me. If sold individually, each book is $5 USD, or a set of 5 for $20 USD. These prices include shipping as they are TINY, so shipping is minimal. I'm also open to negotiation. If you want to swap yarn or something, e-mail and we'll see what we can work out :)
