"Green Grimoire" is the name I've chosen for this little tiny 1/12th scale book.
A grimoire is a book containing magical spells, sigils and mostly the thoughts of the witch practictioner.
My version of this grmoire is based in nature, it contains paintings from artists that I admire like J.W Waterhouse, from Walter Crane, Cicely M. Barker and many many more, I included old botanical prints, some pages from middle age books and from other ancient sources such as the Voynich Code.
This book contains 75 illustrations, its measurements are: H 2,2 cm, W 2cm (including spine 2,2 cm), D 1,5 cm. It opens and closes with a small metal "flower".
The whole book has been handmade, each page was cuted, sewn and assembled. All illustrations have been resize so as to fit properly. The marks in pink and blue were added later, the blue one is made of blue silk strings which I braded.
The symbol you see on the front and spine was of my own creation, it's a 5 petal flower into a circle which means "sacred nature" for me.
It took 5 days to be completed, it was a lot lot of work and so far it's my most intrincate piece ever made and one I totally love
