A cat's dream by shirua A cat's dream by shirua
• A cat's dream •

For some reason, I like this book. I think it's because I tried to make it different than the rest of the books that I have made so far where I applied more thought to it.

- Hand drawn Cover on Unbleached Cotton.
- Back Cover wrapped with Brown polka dot Fabric.
- Da Vinci hand writting fabric.
- Red thread and Green fabric to bind the book.
- Mini lace( green and white)
- 192 pages of 120gsm and 140 gsm Papers ( cream and craft papers).
- Book size: 15.5 cm x 22cm.




You can check out more images of my books on my facebook page here :

Currently this book will be displayed at Mori Zakka, Malaysia.

Hand drawn and handbound with care ♥

Well I make hand made books myself, however, I have a friend who I think would love this as a birthday present. How much is it? Have you an etsy shop or something?

Eh sorry, I forgot I used AUD on Etsy. I changed the currency and it's actually USD 33. Sorry >.<

Yup I have an etsy shop. After a lot of considerations on the material and effort for the book, I'm planning to sell this book for USD 30.50 excluding shipping fees. I used registered mail for the shipping fees so you will received the book within 7 - 10 days. A tracking number will be sent to you as well :)

Well that's a very fair price. In fact for the amount of hours that you put in, it's probably too low a price. I've had a few unexpected expenses this month so if it's still available in a months time I'll very likely get it. If it's sold in the mean time, then I'll be delighted that you've earned that commission, because it's such a lovely book.

Lol, I was planning to put it higher but I felt that this is a fair price to put for both local and international buyers at the moment :)
Sure, just pm me when you're planning to get it :D

You can ask them if they're open for consignment :D You also need to show them your product then they will decide whether to put it up in their shop or not. It's so happen that one of my colleague knew the person in the shop and recommended me to try so that's wat I did =X
