This is no different to any of our Properly Made Books except it's much smaller!
It's totally handmade from the inside to the out; the materials and techniques used are exactly the same.
It's a full leather binding with tooled gold leaf to every surface.
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. OurProperly Made Booksare of a far superior quality and construction to anything available elsewhere.
