Description

This little book was given to me by a friend, found in a box of her Swedish parents' books. The book is about 3x7 inches, & the covers were no longer attached. There is no spine, & the thread that sewed the book together is disintegrating. But she & I could not imagine throwing away these beautiful pages. There was a stack of four books, all of them dated between 1819 & 1855. (see photos for close up of original book cover & missing spine!) Each bookmark features one full page from the book, a Swedish version of Luther's Shorter Catechism, fully enclosed in vellum to protect the book page. Then it is stitched by hand to a piece of thick kraft paper to give it stability. Black ribbon finishes the bookmark. Bookmark measures 3.5x7.5 & each one is unique. Arrives tucked into a small bag made from vintage book pages.
