1:12 Scale Adelaide's Hours is a rare Italian creation, my miniature version opens and has a hard cover with 12 vibrant illuminated pages written in Latin and measures approximately 5/8 inch high by 7/16 of an inch wide. Books of Hours contained prayers and readings for the hours of the day prescribed for worship. They could be decorated in a manner befitting the wealth and position of the owner, and designed to the owner's taste. Books of Hours were personal prayer books, and usually small for portability so they could be turned to at the appropriate hour or moment wherever the owner might be in a domestic or public place without needing to go to a church.
All my books that are 1/12 scale have miniature hard covers. Most of my miniature books are readable BOOKS. They are printed on both sides of the page with a readable passages drawn from the actual book being depicted. All of my books interior paper, hardcover book board covers, ink and glues are acid-free archival quality. Scaled perfectly for your dollhouse, room box, dollhouse coffee table or a book shelf in your miniature scene. I personally design every book which can take up to 2 hours. I use pages and illustrations from the original books wherever possible.
This is a collectors item and it is not recommended for small children.
