Hello all,

I decided to make a tiny alphabet book. It is 27 mm by 25 mm by 8 mm (or 1 and 1/16" by 1" by 3/16") and made of acid free sketch paper, with handmade Japananese paper for the cover and end pages. The spine is watercolour paper with linen book tape and embroidery thread was used to made the tiny end bands. It is bound with the coptic stitch (which proved challenging on this scale!  Wink ). It is shown with a shiny new Canadian quarter for scale (which is the same size as an American quarter).



Inside the illustrations are of assorted, little, tiny things:

Thanks very much!  Cheesy I wanted a quirky and unexpected list.

My better half was avocating for little (monosyllabic or simple at least) words too, but some letters, like x, are always tough. Smiley

Good question (life kinda exploded on me  Undecided and I was nervous about being a good organizer if I wasn't even sure where I would be living). Haven't given up on the idea and promise to let you know when I am ready to organize.  Smiley

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
