At just over 7/8th of an inch (2.4cm) tall and just under 1 and 1/2 inches (3.7cm) wide, these are a bit smaller than the other photograph albums that I make.
They have a separate gutter between the pages, which is how a great many albums were originally constructed, and this design allows the – relatively thick album pages to lie flat without straining the binding.
These examples are fixed open flat, and have a moveable page marker that can be arranged – or removed entirely – to suit the situation.
The pages are reproduced from a Victorian album and are crisp and clean, and have painted gilt edges.
The photographs are miniature reproductions of Victorian originals and are printed on professional quality, matt photographic paper and inset into the pages.
The cover is made from soft, very dark brown, leather – which has been recycled from an old handbag.
Please note – this handmade item is not a ‘toy’, it is a ‘collector’s item’
