UNIQUE. Miniature Book. 2 1/2 x 2 3/8 inches. Unpaginated.  pp. 6 hand-drawn and colored illustrations of different squirrel species, cut in silhouette and stitched to the pages with red thread over a hand-made paper accordion-fold text block; text clean, unmarked. Limp squirrel vellum over paper end-leaves, with an illustration of a squirrel visible through the vellum that forms the front cover; binding square and tight. Housed in a slipcase covered in blue paper and squirrel skin leather on top and bottom, paper label on front. Fine. An artists' book with 6 of Donna Thomas's lively illustrations of North American squirrels, with a cover made from brain-tanned squirrel skin.

This little volume demonstrates the infinite creativity afforded artists who work in the book arts; especially miniature books.
