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

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.
