The Phaenomena is a miniature book containing selected pages of a book created in Naples, Italy in 1469.

It contains colored drawings of the constellations and a circular figure of the heavens. The print is too tiny for me to read.

This doll house miniature book has 42 pages and measures 1 5/16" inches high, 1 inch wide and 5/16" inch thick, which is large for 1" scale.

The pages are printed on parchment paper. The dollhouse book is constructed using techniques the artist has developed for miniature books. But, remember that books were very large in ancient times!

This product is not a toy. It is an adult collectible miniature and not for children.
