But did you know that Angeline also created hand bound poetry books? I didn't, until I stumbled upon an eBay listing while searching for Let's Tat. I decided to bid on them because part of what I like about Let's Tat is the fact that it is hand bound. The poetry books share the same quality:
I was the only one to bid on the listing, and because they were rather cheap, I did not read the description very carefully. The title said that the books were miniature, but the photos looked normal. I assumed the books were just slightly smaller than an average book, similar to the dimensions of Let's Tat, but with a lot fewer pages.
So, I was a little confused when I received a parcel in the mail that was much too small to hold two books. Hilarity ensued when I opened the package and was met with these:
The surprise made getting these books all the more worthwhile. Here they are next to Let's Tat. Look how much smaller they are!
The little burgundy book's title is almost completely worn off the cover, but it reads "Poems." Oddly, inside of the book, the title is listed as "Excerpts." It contains drawings of flowers intermixed with poems:
The light blue book has "Lullabye" written on the cover, but on the inside it is titled "My Baby." This one contains no pictures, just poems:
I think these tiny books are pretty neat. How about you?
