Book Swap #11: AnticoValore


This diminutive(4.5 x 3.5 cm) volume comes from Simona at AnticoValore. The cover is leather combined with pages from an old book (about XVII sec., History of Italy by Francesco Guicciardini). She's used strong Italian Fabriano paper inside and stitched it all together with linen thread.


You can find more books and other goodies from Simona in her shop: www.anticovalore.etsy.com.
