Made to the very highest standard using the finest quality materials, these lay-flat books contain 94 pages (188 sides) of dual texture watercolour board.
Entirely handmade in Scotland by J&J Jeffery, two of the most imortant (and increasingly collectable) craftspeople in world whose work is held all over the world including at the Met Library in New York City.
All of these books are full leather with tooled leather spines and internal vellum tipped corners to help to protect the book in their day to day use.
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. Ours are a one-piece structure.
Supplied with a handmade slipcase covered in a hand printed paper and lined with old handmade antique printed papers. A slipcase protects the book and adds a decorative flourish.
An unusual dual texture Hahnemuhle watercolour boaord.
