It seems my last post about micro layouts was popular, so here’s some more of these miniature marvels from the 13th JAM (Japan Association of Model Railroaders) Convention, found through Hobby Search. You can’t get a layout any smaller or simpler than a circle, yet these pack in a lot in just a little bit of space. I particularly like how the perspective has been skewed in the construction of these for added visual depth.
Size: 1.8 x 1.4 cm (0.70 x 0.55 inch). This book saddle-stitched hardcover book, covered in leather. All is done from scratch. Papers are tea-dyed (Earl Grey) , headband and bookmark are hand-weaved.
There’s 35 pages+endpapers, covered with 67 drawings of alchemy symbols, decorations and lettering, all done by hand. There are numerous “damages” made on book inside and out, burns, stains, rips, so it would resemble old, used book. Covers are gilded with pva/gold paint method.
