Red Riding Hood - prop book by Maylar Red Riding Hood - prop book by Maylar
Check the video: [link]

This is a fairy tale type of book, made to be a prop in the Red Riding Hood themed movie, called "Little Red" (working title) by Sara Baum :)

For once (which will come as a surprise to my watchers, lol) it is a regular size book.

A bit over 8 x 6 inches, this is a saddle stitched book and has hard covers in red faux leather. There are 55 pages dyed in black tea, of which only four middle ones are fully printed with a Red Riding Hood story and illustrations (which is familiar to you as a bookmark and as a painting already in my gallery). The book has a silk bookmark, finished with "snake tongue".

Covers are gilded in gold leaf.

As always, all done by hand, by me: digital art and preparation, faux leather creating (with help of my sister :) ), paper dyeing, stitching, "snake tongue" and gilding.

Hope you like it :)

The gold ornamentation on the outside, how did you make it stand out from the red like that? I think I might try to make a book myself one day =)
