Stop Everything and Check Out these Miniature Book Houses

So here’s something that absolutely needs a place in my cabinet of curiosities– book houses! Real books, “hollowed-out” and filled with a miniature vignette setting, complete with tiny scaled wallpaper and parquet flooring. They come from a little-known artist I found in the far corners of the net, Shannon Moore, who has been working with miniatures since the 1970s– and definitely deserves more recognition for her work.

Shannon usually lights her book boxes with nite-lite bulbs and all are ready to “move-in”. No piece is ever the same and prices start from $175.
