Mini Stories by Scout Editions invites readers to delve into the hidden histories and enchanting tales behind the everyday objects and wonders that surround us.
Mini Stories came about from Scout Editions´ love of history and story-telling. Over the past few years they have created a series of cute cards that have simplistic illustrations. They are Riso printed on the front with a story on the back about the object. It’s usually an interesting fact about how that object was invented or an insight you may be unaware of.
Mini Stories is a collection of these illustrations and accompanying texts. It’s a small art book that will appeal to fans of this ´kawaii´ style of illustration. The content would appeal both to adults and children. Or even more accurately, creative people with kids, who are interested in design, function, history and aesthetics.
Mini Stories boasts eight distinct bellyband designs, each adorned with a unique illustration from the book. These thoughtfully designed bellybands fold out to reveal a black and white poster showcasing a collection of icons, specially crafted by Scout Editions.
