After some long(ish) time not being around, here I am, with a new miniature book.
This one has a nautical theme. As usual, it is 1.8 x 1.4 cm in size (0.70 x 0. 55 inch), so to suite 1:12 scale and it is an OOAK work. If interested, it is available on my Etsy:[link]
Hard covers are covered in green-blue faux leather and decorated with the gilded compass rose. Corner protectors and spine cover are also gilded, all with goldleaf. All is done from scratch (including the making of faux leather).
Inside, the book has 40 blank pages, dyed in earl grey tea and then re-dyed in specially prepared blue Indian ink. This gives the pages a special "feel" and many small and interesting imperfections.
Book is bound by saddle stitch. Pages are hand torn, before second dyeing, so the edges would keep that extra strong coloration visible when book is closed. Endpapers are digitally created (drawn in PS, by me), again from scratch and then printed on tea dyed paper.

Hope you like it
