bc1is026ab ~ United States White House China
Volumes 1 and 2
. Includes plates for display.
Designed and Compiled by Ann Lenore Vanture

Size: 25mmhx32mmwx7mmd (each volume)

Description:
This is a project I have worked on for over a year! I'm sure it has a narrow appeal, nevertheless it was a labor of love and perfect for the student of American heritage. You will find a page for each U.S. President (Trump is not included since we are hardly into his term. He may announce a china pattern later). Both volumes include true bookbinder's bookcloth covers, and each has a laminated cover art panel, plus both fit into a laminated sleeve for storage. The artwork is as true as the sample photo. Over the years, so many, many customers write me after receiving an order telling me how surprised they are at the high quality print!

Also included in the kit are 16, .75" plates and 16, 1" plates for display. I've mounted a set in the photo below.

The books include a history of White House china perfectly typeset and readable. I have included a one page pdf file here of that text for you to print.

As with all Paper Minis book kits a photo tutorial is included.
