Extraordinary Shops In Books


These little shops and vignettes built into books have been displayed at Seattle before. This time I managed to get more detailed views of the contents.

A booklover whose grandmother was the town librarian, I can't bring myself to do this to books, but I love the effect when someone does it as cleverly as Janey Elliot has done. Susan Harmon of "Heirlooms by Susan" is a maker of extraordinary miniature ladies accessories and jewelery. Janey's "Ode" showcases many of those miniatures in a shop that focuses on history and elegance, hallmarks of Susan's designs.
