In Miniature

I love all things miniature. They draw me in, hold my gaze, and challenge me to focus on their finesse
I am in awe of the detail in miniature objects, and for this reason I love visiting miniature fairs. 
I visited one recently, and returned with this tiny book, printed in the 19th Century, when paper was a rarer, more expensive luxury, 
and not the commodity that it is now.
It is a bible, (it was common practice for people to carry them on their person), in it's entirety, and in miniscule print.  
You'd need a very strong magnifying glass in order to read it.
