Moon Changes by Maylar Moon Changes by Maylar
Here's a peculiar little thing...this book is 8mm high and minus paper, everything is handmade, even the little silver glass moon in the down right corner...all of course by me. There's also a nice story behind this, but keep reading...

Book is filled with illustrations of moon changes (full set), but my camera didn't worked well with those, so I photographed only two pages. In future, there might be an update.

Why moon changes? Time for a nice story.

Few years ago, on my trip through Hungary, I met an old fortune teller. We got to know each other pretty well and talked about many things, including importance of moon changes in her job. In the end, I asked her to give me something as a souvenir and ended up with two things: an lovely crescent moon shaped pendant, which miniature replica you see as a bookmark on this book and a piece of the velveteen cloth she uses to cover her fortune telling crystal ball.

Well, making this book, I thought a lot about her, so decided to sacrifice a piece of that cloth for this. I trimmed it, until I got a fine velveteen dust, then mixed it with glue and that is with this book covers are covered :)

I told you it's a nice story, didn't I?

By the way, coin used for size reference here is a lucky coin of mine and I also got it from someone pretty peculiar himself, but...that's another story.

Hope you like this :)

How in the world do you make it so small? I'm not familiar with bookbinding, but I can tell it must have taken a lot of skill and patience to craft something like this. Do you use jeweler's equipment?
