Back to miniature one-of-a-kind books.

A Good Book (2009). 1 1/2  x 1 1/4 inches. (Clamshell box measures 2 1/8 x 1 7/8 inches). The text is a quote by Kathleen Norris. Two similar but unique copies. $395.

This quote speaks of the comfort of a good book! There are four watercolor paintings featuring reading, books and a view of Norris’ home in Palo Alto. The paper used to make this book include hand marbled, Peter’s handmade and paper from a very old book (17th Century!). It is full bound in copper colored leather. There is a leather covered raised panel on the front with a label of the old paper. The clamshell box features a sculptural book on the cover.
