Little Etsy Books

The man who introduced me to book arts disdains miniature books, and I have to admit that they can be painfully precious, but sometimes they can be pretty neat – and the workmanship required to create them is astounding. Here’s a few little books I found on Etsy, one of my favorite browsing sites.

Basilisk Journal by Meowstro: 3″ x 2″ ($9)

Blank Book 3 Piece Binding by OrtBindery: 82mm x 53mm x 15mm ($75)


Book of Questions by NinaJudinBooks: 3.3cm x 42cm ($125)

Decorated Notebook by purplemagpie: 7.5cm x 11.5cm ($7)

Tiffany Cassette Tape Blank Book by erinzam: 4″ x 2.5″ x 1.5″ ($18)


A Week in my Garden by runmoremiles: 2″ x 2″ ($4)

Zodiac Monsters and The Tiny Zodiac Monsters Coloring Book by monstergallery: 1.5″ x 1″ and 1.125″ x 0.875″ ($0.60 each)

I’m dreadfully amused by the Mentos book, and you should definitely click to see the adorable illustrations in the Zodiac Monster books. I can’t believe the 1/12 scale book – so tiny! Check out the bookshelf book, too – the three shelves of books are actually each volumes in an abecadarian!

Accio Deathly Hallows

One of these days I’ll post something non-HP related, I swear. Today, maybe!

Brotherhood 2.0 is a video-blog by two brothers who are doing an experiment – no talking to one another for a solid year in any form other than 4-minute daily videos. It’s gained a huge following. One of the brothers does a weekly song; he’s no great vocal talent, but his songs are brilliant and funny. Song-making brother is a well-read environmentalist blogger, and the other brother is a published YA author.

Anyway, this video, from July 18, is the #! favorited YouTube video right now. Big coup for their website. And the song is great – his “uh oh” predictions are pretty on (so yeah, spoiler alert, despite the video title), and he’s totally saying exactly what I was thinking!
