Found in Faery by myceliae Found in Faery by myceliae
Just finished this one this afternoon.
A small one (again) although not as small as the EarthyMini!
9cm wide x 8.5cm tall x 2.5cm thick.
Springback, raised cords, 3 part closure.
Heavy, hand-stained watercolour paper, 54ish pages, torn and gold edges.
Pigskin leather cover, hand-dyed. Recessed bits in hand-painted sculpey, crystal (green aventurine and Paua shell cabochon), and wood.

EDIT: Thankyou for the DD, I'm so honoured!

Also, there seems to be some confusion here that I've noticed. Not just with this book but also with others. I do not COVER pre-made books. All of my books are bound from scratch, in the Springback style. For those interested in how this process works, you can see the binding of one of my larger books on my website, here: [link]

Love!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-20
Found in Faery by =myceliae. A very small, 9cm wide x 8.5cm tall x 2.5cm thick (3 1/2" x 3 3/8" x 1") springbound book, completely hand-made from the leather cover to the gilt-edged paper to the gems set in sculpey. Really must be seen in fullview to take in all the wonderfully magical details. Do be sure to browse =myceliae's gallery because it is a real treasure of many other delightful hand-made books!

I bet it was! It's very organic. Oh one more question how did you put the lock onto the cover and give it that recessed look, rather than just sitting on the surface?

a little mastery piece, it is pretty accurate and doesn't look "cheap" ( it is the often the case with this kind of work, the materials doesn't get "history" and looks just glued together without really sense, and finally doesn't work and look "flat") you know how to instil history in your work and it works
