A Mini Book...

"Every Joy In Life Is A Gift."

I started making mini accordion folded books years ago to show case my calligraphy quotes. I used handmade or decorative papers to make the covers but they were simple and understated. My art focus has changed to include much more than calligraphy. Creating this butterfly theme mini book was a joy.
