Stunning Sunflower Binding

A extra large book with 74 pages (188 sides) of heavyweight drawing, writing and painting paper inside.

This is totally handmade and suitable as an artists' book, a journal, guestbook, wedding book etc.  

BINDING STYLE & BOOK STRUCTURE

A superior style of binding called Tight-back or Flexible Binding with laced on boards and raised bands.

Tight-back or Flexible binding allows the book to open completely flat without damaging the book; very important when drawing and writing.

This type of structure makes the book incredibly strong and durable. Opening the book flat will, over time, cause the spine to crease but not break. 

Tight Back or Flexible Bindings should not be mistaken for inferior Case Bindings.

COVER

The cover paper is hand printed from a lino block and then hand coloured. 

SPINE

The spine is black goatskin, blind tooled down the long edges and gold tooled on the raised bands, the panels and the head and toe of the spine. 

LEATHER CORNERS in the same black goatskin as the spine with blind tooling on the diagonal. Leather corners help to protect the book from everyday wear and tear as well as adding a decorative flourish.
