The miniature book itself is a little handmade masterpiece. Everything is perfect about it: the folding of the leather corners, the small but perfectly defined spine, the traditionally bound pages with perfect little stitches and perfectly cut edges. I don't even know how that's possible on such a small scale...! Being a book-lover, my first instinct was to open it and sniff - it smelt like a real new book, of tanned leather and clean pages!
