Fairies, Goblins and Gnomes book by Maylar Fairies, Goblins and Gnomes book by Maylar
YT: [link]

Commission work for *MandarinMoon,this miniature book is a hard cover book, bound by perfect binding. It is 1.8 cm high (0.70 inch) and filled with 36 miniature illustrated pages of fairies, goblins, gnomes, trolls and spirits of nature and household, done in watercolor and pencil on tea-dyed paper. Endpapers are made of same paper, stained to resemble old age.

Covers are made of faux leather and polymer clay, front representing nature (with leaves and flowers) and back representing household, with buttons, yarn and similar and a little gnome peeping through it. Letters on front are gilded with gold paint and the attached bookmark is hand-woven.

All done by hand, by me (of course ;) ).

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: A DD! Thank you so much, both *Talty and ^FrockTarts, glad you find it worth of this!!! Lol, the fourth time, but I will never get used to it...and it feels incredibly good...I'm drowning in the mix of humbleness, happiness and excitement! Thank you, thank you so much!

Imagines self dressed as jester, shouting "Read my story!" And holding a physical copy.
But in the meantime this link will have to suffice.…
