Big and Little: Bible Picture ABC Book

I think my addiction to making miniature books is pretty well documented at this point.

On a suggestion from a friend, I decided I should try to make a miniature Bible.

I couldn't find one that I thought would lend itself well to being a miniature (yet, I'm still looking), and instead I stumbled across this beautiful "Bible Picture ABC Book" that my father had as a child.

I did change the back a little bit (I dunno, like having stuff on the back of my books. The original is just blank blue.)  But this tiny book was actually made from the real book my father had.

Tah-dah! Dad's original book next to my tiny version.

I'll be honest, it took some time and patience to cleanup some of the "decorating" dad and his little sisters did to this beautiful, vintage book (Originally published in 1934!)

But the pictures were so beautiful, I think it was worth the effort. And it was a wonderful addition to my dollhouse bookshelf.

I love making big things into miniature, and I'm so happy I stumbled across this book!

Thanks, Dad!
