Deerskin Note Books

It has been a while since there have been any miniature books posted here.  It has been a while since I’ve had a chance to make any!  These are from the fall, when there were no art classes and no roofs needing roofing.  Both are a bit bigger than what I usually make – these are miniatures rather than micro minis.  They’ll still fit in the palm of your hand, but only one at a time.

They are cut from the same hide, very soft and malleable deer hide.  They have the usual sewn binding and silk embroidery floss headbanding.  The magnetic clasps click together with a satisfying snap and there are many pages so it will last a while.

The first one has an original watercolour scene of St. Charles’ Mission down at Dunvegan and the second has a marker drawing of a fall tree.  DSCF0002 DSCF0006

  1. I love it! I’ve been looking for a leather book with blank pages as an inspiration book or doodle book and this reminded me of one!
