  4. Napoleon's Marshals

    The satin varnish is too shiny for the Slipcase I have some matte varnish coming. I think that will tone it down but I like the strength the varnish imparts to the paper
  5. Help - Help - Help Please

    I now have about 7 or so books printed or ready for printing and assembling: The three volume set of Napoleon's life - Slipcased together The two volume set of John Flaxman's Illustrations of Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey - Slipcased together The first two volumes of my "History of World Art" series The Paintings of Jacques-Louis David - individually Slipcased The Sculpture of Antonio Canova engraved by Henry Moses - individually Slipcased   In another week or two I should have some sets assembled and ready to go. What I need is a few people familiar with miniatures to look them over and critique them. Tell what they see wrong, what I could do better, etc. In exchange they can keep them or dispose of them as they decide. I feel like I can only progress so far without some independent review at this point. If this is something you think you can do please PM me. I hope this isn't out of line for asking here?

  8. Wedgwood Jasperware

    John Flaxman, who did the designs for the Iliad and Odyssey I used in the miniature books I made, did most of these designs as well. This set dates from 1955 but the patterns are 150 years older than that

  14. Wedgwood Jasperware

    we collect some Jasperware by Wedgwood, not seriously, just here and there (I go for any type of neoclassical art) so I gt these miniatures for my wife for X-Mas. They aren't dollhouse size more like 1:6, and the vases are about 3 1/4" tall
