Antique Book Replica by MilleCuirs Antique Book Replica by MilleCuirs
This is an exemple of what I called "Antique book replicas". Its like those old books you find lost in old dusty ruins of libraries. All the interior pages are aged to give them that antique look. The lambskin is chosen for its grain. Central motif is a celtic Triskele. All those books are handmade and one of a kind!

The suggester said: "The design and attention to detail is amazing! I can totally picture pulling this book off the shelf of in abandoned library and blowing a layer of dust off to get a better look."

Thank you! Book clasps are so difficult to find nowadays. You have to handcraft them, or buy something that is not design for books. Those are "pin hooks" found at a local hardware store. Small enough, looking antique enough, they are doing a great job and do not cost too much!
