I am so glad I found you. Good to see your nice work.
Keep doing beautiful bindings.
Hope to see you at the Standards in San Francisco.
you are not a special bookbinder , you’re a talent artist
Beautiful work! Haven’t done any leather binding yet, as I only started bookbinding in 2005. My curiosity is aroused by the blue covered book. What have you used as endpapers on that book, and why do they extend well past the trimmed text block? This is something I haven’t seen before. Your head and tail bands are also very beautiful, and some of the patterns you have used look quite like military ribbons.
Hi andrew, I believe what you are looking at is the book with what’s called an edge-to-edge doublure. It’s actually leather which is pared extremely thin, and overlaps the leather turn-ins. I hope this answers your question!
your work is really amazing I liked it a lot, Just awesome!
