This book is totally handmade from the inside to the outside including the materials used in its construction with the exception of the sewing thread.

It's covered with a hand marbled paper with a gold tooled leather spine and filled with vintage handmade cotton rag watercolour paper. 

VELLUM TIPPED CORNERS - The corners are tipped with recycled vellum documents (you can still see remnants of hand writing on the material) which not only adds a decorative flourish but also gives extra protection when in a bag or placing on a shelf. Vellum tipped corners are also a pointer the extreme quality found only in Properly Made Books.  

A PROPERLY MADE BOOK

You can't find off-the-shelf books of this quality anywhere else in the world because no other bindery makes them. These books can take months, not weeks or days to produce. 

Entirely handmade in Scotland by J&J Jeffery, two of the most important (and increasingly collectable) craftspeople in world whose work is held all over the world including at the Met Library in New York City.

LAYFLAT aka Tightback or Flexible Binding

Due to the traditional, long way round techniques used to make these wonderful books, they open completely flat without any danger of breaking the spine. Most books are case bindings where the book block is glued to the front and rear cover. Our Properly Made Books are of a far superior quality and construction to anything available elsewhere.
