Marbled Miniature Book #1

Regular price £60.00

A half-binding (leather spine and paper covers).

This little book has a deep brown calfskin spine with raised bands and gold tooling. The covers are waxed and polished hand marbled papers. The corners of the binding have tiny vellum tips, quite astonishing in a book of this size and the foredges of the bookblock are sprinkled.

Size - 70 x 95 x 20 mm, 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 x 3/4 inches

It contains 84 pages of smooth cartridge paper for ink and pencil.

This is one of two miniature marbled bindings made by John Jeffery, one of the finest exponents of his craft in the world.
