Coptic Binding with Oxidized Copper Plate Covers
My friend Kristin had her dad crimp and drill these plates for me years ago, and then we had fun oxidizing the plates in a bath of ammonia, sawdust and rock salt. The result was very pretty, if I do say so myself. This month, I _finally_ got around to making a book with the plates. I think the copper plates make beautiful covers. I’d like to play more with copper in my bindings.
(The book is available for sale at my Etsy Shop)
