These miniature albums just fractionally over 1 inch (2.5cm) high and just over 1 and 1/2 inches (4cm) wide and 1/16th of an inch (2mm) thick.
The pages of the albums are reproduced from a Victorian album and retain the fading and marking due to their age.
The photographs are miniature reproductions of Victorian originals and are printed on professional quality matt photographic paper and inset in the pages.
I try to vary the photographs in the albums as much as possible but, as detail disappears fairly quickly, my choice is more limited with the smaller sized images.
They have flat leather ‘covers’ and these are usually made from soft, fine leather from recycled old gloves and handbags.
The pages have faded gilt edges and each has a worn silk ribbon page marker.
These albums are fixed open and do not close.
Please note – these handmade items are not ‘toys’, they are ‘collector’s items’
I find these really difficult to photograph too…
