tiny books

The day before yesterday I had the sudden urge to create a miniature version of Victoria Stitch.  The right size for Victoria Stitch herself!  So I printed all the spreads out at about a twelfth of the actual size and stuck them all together as neat as I could to make this tiny hardback book.  I have to say, I am quite pleased with the result.  The only thing I can think of to make it better would be to print it at a higher resolution/on a better printer so that the smallest writing in the book is actually readable.
Anyhow, I think it's cute and it will take pride of place on the bookshelf inside my castle when it is finished.   I might even try and sell some on etsy if I can make them to a professional enough standard.

Now, if you're anti valentines day don't read any further.  I want to show you what I made for Henry.  Again, enter tiny book number two.  In fact this book is about half the size of the Victoria Stitch one.  It's really titchy, smaller than a ten pence coin! 
I enjoyed making it so much that I'm going to make more!  I love drawing tiny.  I really need to set up an etsy shop one of these days!

And Henry totally surprised me this morning with pink roses and the multicoloured rabbit I was coveting. It was amazing.  I did not see it coming at all! :)

Well anyway, I guess this leaves me to say, Happy Valentines Day! for all of you who celebrate it today and Happy Monday for those of you that don't!

I agree, you must set one up. Tiny books are cute, would be great stocking stuffers at Christmas time.

It must have been some feat to complete this! Love small pieces like this - I'm full of admiration! Love the blog too by the way!
