We are so impressed by the details of these tiny handmade books!Ciulla_E

The first is by Canadian artist, Erin Ciulla. It is a suitcase containing miniature books with mixed media, found materials, and handmade paper.

 

Pattison

The second is by Todd Pattison, who studied bookbinding in New York in the late 1970s and early 1980s and went on to study with Hugo Peller and Edwin Heim in Ascona, Switzerland. He is currently senior book conservator at the Northeast Document Conservation Center where he has worked for the past eighteen years. This particular project is "found and altered early 19th-century leather binding with fore-edge clasps. The bookshelves of the altered binding hold seventy-two blank leather- and paper-covered books which open and range in height from 1” to 1.5”." (via Guild of Book Workers)
