Miniature books competition 1999


In 1999 a competition miniature bindings was organised by the bookbinding society (now: Stichting Handboekbinden).

The prints were made by publisher Philip Elchers in Groningen.

One book was bound with a free content and one was bound with a content that was given by the publisher.

Here a picture of my two bound books.

Book 2: ABC-darium, published by Philip Elchers, Groningen.
