A collection of small books with handmade shelf #2
If you're a collector of books, a book lover or an appreciator of things arty and unique, then this is for you.
I have created a collection of small books, all made with my hands, and placed lovingly on a shelf made also, with my own hands.
Each book measures: 90 X 100 mm and contains a collection of random papers, some of which have been dyed in coffee and some in dyes.
There are two of these up for sale, similar but each one unique (as is always the case when things have been handmade).
You can display your collection of books with the spines facing towards you, or turn it around to feast your eyes on the colourful pages - most of which have been torn or cut with a knife to create a deckled edge finish.
All the books have been bound using a variation of the straight stitch method. I used white linen thread which is sturdy and keeps the books bound beautifully.
If you have any questions about this collection you can, indeed you must, email me.
