A Big Book

Regular price €0,00

This less than compact binding is larger than normal.

Filled with a recycled. British-made cartridge paper, this very impractical book makes you wonder at the possibilities.

Covered with an antique French sea-chart and bound with an elaborately piece of calligraphy from an antique vellum legal document at the spine, this is a true one-off. The title reads

WHATSOEVER TO ALTER INCUMBER OR DEFEAT THE SAME.

The corners on the cover boards are vellum tipped which not only look great, they also add protection to the most vulberable part of the binding, especially when in a bag, or in this case, a scabbard!

The structure of this book is such that it can be opened fully, board to board, allowing the book to be held in one hand whilst sketching with the other.
