Thank you! The pages are 11" x 17" folded in half. And no, the clasps don't really work... they're only made of cardboard, as are the corner plates. I painted them with copper-colored metallic paint, then aged a bit with a little bit of flat black paint.
Sarednab's manuscript is the one that inspired me to make one of my own, though his is WAY cooler, with a leather cover and working metal clasps... mine isn't leather, just a leather-looking (sort of) fabric I got at Wal-mart, and the non- functional clasps are just painted cardboard.... but I made mine more or less just for looks anyway, but if I ever have the means and develope the talent I'll definitely have to try to make one like his.
