This little baby has a Polish mum, so we have a card in English for Mum & Dad,
& a Polish version for one set of grandparents from the other...
A strip of sanwaa tissue across the back of the book, with it's gold & silver flecks,
co-ordinates nicely with the metallic shimmer of the lettering.
All tied together with silver twine!
There's a lovely blend of textures in these little books, making them a delight to hold...
can you see the laid-lines of the bamboo mould that the paper is dried on?
When open, they measure 6" x 16" / 15cm x 40.5cm. I folded these to form the concertina (or accordion) effect, but they could just as easily be rolled to form a scroll!
Thanks "G" from GN Jewellery for her time in translating for me!
