I have been working on the inside of Hermione's copy of The Tales of Beedle, The Bard. Once I'm finished working on the pages I'll post the entire book and a "How To" explaining how I put (or intend to put :p) mine together.
It's still a work in progress, however i have a few pages printed. You can see them in the pics and get a feel of what is it gonna look like. The text is all in runes, but I'm not an specialist! I only know a few things about Futhark so the runic text is not 100% correct, in fact it's a Futhark font I've used.
I've aged normal printer sheets with coffee and printed the text on them.

Oh my god you are a life saver!!! I've had the idea to do this for a long time now but just had no idea where to start (what kind of runes they were, how to translate them, the correct dimension, what kind of paper to use, etc, etc). Keep posting and i'll be happy to help in any way that i can. Will you be including the notes by Albus Dumbledore? I know there is an edition of the book where JK Rowling added some notes by Dumbledore. I don't know how many there are or if it's just the Deathly Hallows symbol at the beginning (which I see you have). Great job so far! =)

Thank you guys!
Now that I saw some pages I guess I'll change the design a little bit. The Text is all typed and no I'll not include Dumbledore's notes 'cuz I believe they were not on the good, as Hermione didn't know about the Deathly Hallows until talking to Mr. Lovegood. If she had read the notes she's know about them.

I'll do my best, but those aged pages take a lot of time! It takes a day to have a nice and perfect sheet :/ I'm looking for different types of paper around town in the hope I'll find one that doesn't require the aging work.

I know some craft stores sell parchment paper that already has the aged look. I don't know what craft stores you have by you, but a trip to one of them may bring you to a suitable replacement for aging paper. I know what a pain that it to do.

Thank you so much!! :)
I don't know why but the capital B doesn't come out as it is in yours... What am I doing wrong?
Since you have helped me... Can I ask you which font you used for "for little people"?
