Elegant handmade book, bound in turquise leather and red-stained wood.
This book is a thing of beauty. The binding is hand-sewn, with page signatures stitched onto soft blue calfskin leather bands, which wrap around and are glued to the wood cover boards. The bands have been given an old-timey kind of shape. Art Nouveau? Steampunk? I'm not sure. The boards are fine-grained thin plywood. The book opens easily and lays flat, and the boards will provide a firm support for writing, or drawing, or doodling, or making things up as you go along.
The edges and corners of the wood have been sanded and slightly rounded. The wood has been stained with MinWax Cabernet stain. I was going to varnish the boards, but I love the feel of the bare wood, so I just sanded them down a bit with Emery paper. The pages are sewn in snugly -- not with one or two, but with four stitches per signature -- and will not fall out or work loose.
This book is a delight to look at, and to feel in your hands, and will be a delight to use.
