Size:
36mm x 25mm (fold-out page), 19mm x 25mm (title page),

The artwork has been digitally enhanced to reflect the original 1880’s beautiful color, and the pages actually fold-out to double the size of the book. Pages are designed for clarity of detail and color on both sides. Artistic license was taken to recreate a dust jacket, and the end boards are enhanced versions.

bc1is002 ~ Blue-Beard Pantomime Toy Book 
McLoughlin Bro's., N.Y. (circa 1890)
Original engineering by Ann Lenore Vanture

Size:
40mm x 27mm (cover), 36mm x 25mm (slide page), 38mm x 25mm (text page)
Pieces: Laminated cover, end boards, dust jacket, 3 pull-out tab pages, 12 pages total including typeset ballad of The Story of Blue Beard

Description: This is a reproduction mini-book version of a very popular McLoughlin Brother's book about the colorful Pirate named Blue-Beard. The text of the story has been completely typeset in a Garamond typeface at a very tiny but readable point size. Different fine art papers have been used to create this moving-parts book and get the most out of the design at such a small size. Some liberty was taken with the McLoughlin's design in order to accomplish the task of shrinking it to 1:12 scale. Take a good look at the close-up to see the pull-out tabs change the content of the page's window in the book.

bc1is009 ~ The International Circus Pop-Up Book
by Lothar Meggendorfer (1887)
Published by J. F. Schreiber, Esslingen, Germany
Original Engineering by Ann Lenore Vanture

Size: 22mmw x 31mmh x 8mmd (box cover)
Pieces: Laminated box sleeve and spare, 10 illustrated panels and spare, 5 pop-up features and spares–if you follow the instructions, you will have enough parts to make and extra pop-up book!

Description: This may very well be the world's smallest pop-up book. After much research, the smallest pop-up book currently available is Mr. Frumble, by Richard Scarry and is recorded at 3" square--and this International Circus is about 1"x.75"!!  Many adjustments were made to make this a working volume and is still fairly easy to make. The box sleeve is a novelty that did not come with the original book, but is a collage of vintage circus posters.

bc1is004 ~ Ballad of the Lost Hare
by Margaret Sidney
Published/Created: Boston, D. Lothrop (circa 1882)

Size:
35mm x 25mm (cover), 32mm x 22mm (page)
Number of Pieces: Laminated cover, 2 end boards, 24 full-color pages, 1 dust jacket and laminated box sleeve

Description: This is a reproduction mini book version of a darling 125 year old children's book, replete with all the original illustrations. Much time was spent bringing life back to the aged and damaged pages. Gone are the faded colors, stains, rips, nicks, and overall discoloring so you can enjoy this treasure of a book as it was when first published. I wanted to stay true to the original full-sized antique edition--right down to the deep brown colored text executed in a retro-style Garamond font. It was truly a challenge to re-typeset, for the original typesetter was incredibly creative with the text layout.

bc1is005 ~ Railroad Story Book
McLoughlin Bros. Publishing
circa 1907 (Extracts also taken from the 1898
McLoughin book titled Railroad ABC Picture Book)

Size:
27mm x 20mm (cover), 25mm x 19mm (text page)
Number of Pieces: 1 laminated cover, 2 end boards, 1 dust jacket, 16 full-color pages.

Description: True to all the McLoughlin Brothers’ children’s books, this one is beautifully illustrated. There is something about their books that projects the “warm fuzzies,” and this is no exception. It would be wonderful to give the author and artist credit, but–as with most of the McLoughlin Brothers’ publications–the creative collaborators remain anonymous.

This miniature rendition has been newly typeset using an appropriate font face titled Goudy Old Style, and the text layout is almost identical to the original full-sized book. The illustrations have been scrubbed, enhanced and color re-saturated to it’s original beauty. The text and illustrations have been laid out on a faux aged patina to give it the rich and warm look of an antique. The back cover and title page were rendered using illustrations from an older McLoughlin Brothers' book titled The Railroad ABC Picture Book (circa 1898), so some artistic license was taken to enhance the original volume.

bc1is304 ~ Tales from the Arabian Nights
Retold by Shirley Goulden
Illustrated by Benvenuti

Illustrations from the 1958 Italian printing
Size: 21.689mmw x 30.063mmh x 7.5mmd (book cover)

Description:
This book has been taken from my very own childhood collection, and therefore one of my favorite miniatures to-date. The illustrations are quite outstanding, so outstanding that my sister described many of them from memory recently! This is a large format children's book and it has been scaled perfectly. Therefore, the size is slightly larger than the average mini-book. Some license was taken to adjust this book down to miniature size, but the stories are complete and all illustrations are included. The original volume has three stories and this edition has the two best. The book cover is lined, end boards are included as is a dust jacket and laminated storage box sleeve (not shown).
