Stock your tiny library with the best-loved works of literature. With this bookmaking kit, you'll learn the secret technique behind L. Delaney's extraordinarily realistic miniature books while creating 50 of the greatest works of literature.  


Each kit includes instructions for completing the fifty tiny volumes using basic crafting supplies. The book covers are L. Delaney's original design, modified from images of real antique books, and printed on high-quality textured paper. The high resolution of the cover images and the textured paper on which they are printed will give great detail and dimensionality to your final product. Each spine has been designed to approximate the actual thickness of the book.  These books are not meant to open and instructions will recommend gluing the pages shut, for heightened realism in scale.  L. Delaney is delighted to offer this kit in a variety of scales: Classic 1-inch, Barbie, Half, and Quarter. Though the tutorial does not change from scale to scale, you may find it useful to modify the suggested materials and technique to your respective scale.
