Half Scale (1/24 scale) Books: Reproduction of miniature books in half scale. These are the same sort of books that we make in 1/12 scale, located above for assemblers to make. However, these are smaller. These books are 1/24 scale, commonly called half scale in the miniatures industry as the common miniatures scale is 1/12 scale. Many people say these books are actually easier to assemble because although they do have printed text inside, the text is small enough that is not legible and is very forgiving in assembly. Just as with our 1/12 scale books available for assembly, the books are made by cutting, folding, and inserting printed pages into a cardstock cover. A dust jacket is then cut out and put over the book, creating an illusion of a hardcover book. Unlike the larger 1/12 scale books, our half scale books are just under 1/2 inch tall. Because of the smaller size, the half scale books pay more than the 1/12 scale books. Also, as these are very new items for us, we choose the title that we send to be assembled. In addition to the other items provided, you will find the following in this kit: sheets of printed book pages (enough to make about 120 books), sheets of printed dust jackets (enough to make about 120 of the insides of each) and printed sheet of cardstock book covers (enough to make about 120 of the of each). The products we make vary in the amount of work it takes to make them. Many people ask for a simple product to start. People with some experience with miniatures or crafts often ask for more complicated products that we buy for more. People work from home at their own skill level. We have products that can be assembled by just about everyone. In general, the more work required to make the product the more we will buy it for. To say it another way, the amount we buy a product for is an indicator of the amount of time it takes to make the product. For example, kits that we buy for $50 take about half the time of kits that we buy for $100.
