Dos-a-Dos #1

Regular price £130.00

A dos-a-dos binding is two books bound in reverse and separately yet still in one structure.

 

Other than being unusual outside of the 17th century, these beautiful bindings also feature:

  • Dutch Gilt Brocade paper covers - printed by the Jefferys entirely by hand on 300+ year old antique handmade paper using metallic golden leaf. Dutch Gilt is a type of paper totally unique to us and was last made in the 18th century to cover children's books.
  • Gold tooled vellum spines and corners. The vellum has been salvaged from ancient legal documents which is still legible.  
  • Sprinkled decorative foredges
  • A bespoke box, again covered in decorative Jeffery papers on 300+ year old antique paper. 
  • 140 pages (280 sides) of smooth cartridge paper suitable for ink and pencil, bound in two sections, dos-a-dos! 

Size - 95 x 150 mm, 3 3/4 x 6 inches

Supplied in its own bespoke box which has been covered in hand printed paper.

This is one of six and the only one made with this design of cover.
