Handmade miniature stamps books
Wonderful illustrated vintage Dutch stamps
Creating miniature match box size books had been a long obsession of mine which dates back to when I was a student in Manchester. I’d make them as gifts for my friends.
I’ve recently been creating some more books using some wonderful colourful vintage stamps from the Netherlands. I buy these for the beautiful graphics and illustrations.
The first step is to create a concertina folded long piece of card the correct size for the stamps. I then stick the stamps onto the pages before I create strong card covers. I then love to cover the front and back pieces of card with patterned paper before adding a yellow card spine. (My trademark yellow!)
I have some of my little books available to buy from my web-shop here.
