BINDING STYLE & BOOK STRUCTURE
A superior style of binding called Tight-back or Flexible Binding with laced on boards and raised bands.
Tight-back or Flexible binding allows the book to open completely flat without damaging the book; very important when drawing and writing.
This type of structure makes the book incredibly strong and durable. Opening the book flat will, over time, cause the spine to crease but not break.
Tight Back or Flexible Bindings should not be mistaken for inferior Case Bindings.
The cover paper is hand printed from a lino block and then hand coloured.
The spine is natural goatskin, blind tooled down the long edges, on the raised bands, the panels and the head and toe of the spine.
LEATHER CORNERS in the same goatskin as the spine with blind tooling on the diagonal. Leather corners help to protect the book from everyday wear and tear as well as adding a decorative flourish.
