Readable Flower Fairy book, Barbara Raheb, IGMA Fellow



The Flower Fairy books by Cicely Mary Barker were originally published in the first half of the 20th century and are still in print today.  This miniature version was hand crafted by IGMA Fellow Barbara Raheb.  Beautifully bound and gilded, there is an initial poem and then line drawings from apple blossom to zinnia.  The last page notes that it is #184 in a limited edition although it doesn't say how big the edition was (usually they were 300 copies).  The illustrations are black and white, and the end papers are plain.

3/4 inch (1.9 cm) by 1 1/16 inches (2.7 cm) and just under 3/16 inch (0.5 cm) thick.
