Alice in Wonderland
by Lewis Carroll
4 5/8 x 3 1/4 x 3/4 inches

French link stitch sewing over "Ramiebrand" tapes with leather collage endbands and marbled endpapers sewn in. Cover of Nigerian goat with onlay, using an illustration from the book and Hugo Pellar's method.

"Sometimes a unique situation arises where you must do a book just for yourself. In a workshop I had to do two miniature bindings &endash; resewn, leather bindings, false bands, onlays on front, and clamshell boxes &endash;all the instructor's way. The pressure was on. This project was one of the results. The resultant "feel good" feeling made that pressure worthwhile."
