Miniature Monday!  (I made it…).
This tiny mini blank book is chained to its larger relative, and fits in the little recess in the cover. 
Statement from the artist’s website: (Click here!)
"Until fairly recently all books were prized possessions — medieval libraries chained books to the shelves to prevent theft. In those days each volume was crafted with precision, elaborately decorated and embellished with precious stones and metals. I aim to make my books just as precious as those medieval manuscripts."
[Chained book on a book].  [Asheville, NC : Dan Essig, 1999]
Catalog: N7433.4.E55 C5 1999a
