Title   [Faux Book] Stone Book made of a black marble with crimson veining and a butterscotch-colored marble for the spine and the corners

Binding   NA

Book Condition   Near Fine

Seller ID   005120

A beautiful near miniature stone book, measuring 113 by 73 by 10 mm and weighing 8.1 ounces. We particularly like the contrast of the spine and corners, suggesting of a half calf binding. There are other details to note, such as the indentation for the "text block" and the bands on the spine. The two stones also couldn't be more different, with the yellow-ish stone nearly a solid color (with tiny vanilla bean flecks) and the darker stone rich in veining and highlights. A few very tiny edge chips do not diminish this stone book, which we would still grade fine, or near fine. Sleek and smooth, this would make for a wonderful paperweight. Dating is elusive, as is the exact provenance.
