Oh heaven! Two of my favorite things - tiny books and a suitcase! Suitcase full of tiny tiny books by Adriana.

I am an artist in the UK and a little bit obsessed with insects! So a few years ago I tried to recreate my favourite specimens using recycled paper, wire and thread. I now have a collection of around 100 different species and am still adding to it!  The insects are all hand cut using a scalpel and some of them are embroidered by hand to create their patterns and textures.

"Knowledge to me is like honey to a bee. You have to chase it through the pages in a book."

I thought this was so cute and minimalist! I love love love the hexagon cut outs, I might try something similar to this in my altered book just to give some texture!
