By the book

Every now and then I get an idea in my head that I simply can't ignore. 
I was supposed to make a bridle for Margaret today.  
Instead, I made a 1:9 scale copy of George Morris' Hunter Seat Equitation
For reasons I can not explain, it was important to me that the pages...
were at least...
semi-flippable. 
This is by no means the entirety of the text, but it's enough to satisfy my inner miniaturist. 
Since I'm not a Photoshop pro and I've never made a 1:9 scale book, this project took a lot longer than I'd expected. I am mostly satisfied with the results, but I'd sort of like to try it again, just to see if I could do it a little better. That will have to wait until tomorrow, though. I really do need to make that bridle.
