Since they’ll never be taken out and opened, I made cheater books to fill the bookcase from 1/8- and 1/16-inch wood, covered in paper. I thought of printing actual titles of my imagined bunny child’s library, but opted to mimic Mr. Hurd’s style. (When in doubt, I ask WWCHD?)
The copy of The Runaway Bunny, however, I decided to do “real”. I had to make an even smaller version from my first attempt to fit the bookcase, just a half-inch tall.
For the painting on the wall, I used the art (converted to grayscale) from The Runaway Bunny, “If you become a fish in a trout stream, said his mother, “I will become a fisherman and I will fish for you.”
The frame is hand-drawn and cut from a double thickness of cardstock. I tried to trace Mr. Hurd’s picture in both Illustrator and Photoshop, correcting for perspective and whatever, but found my sketching hand was more clever than technology in reproducing a workable likeness. Refreshing!
Think I’ll work on the little house next.
