These series of images are of a book I had the pleasure of binding for a delightful client. Danyah has collated, written and illustrated recipes from friends and family. These recipes were beautifully type set in a font like an old typewriter, printed and then we chose colours and details to bind this special book. It is a wedding gift. What a lucky recipient.
I was able to arrange for the printing to be done then we set about designing the colours and papers to use and I set about bounding the book. It is a single section binding and is covered in a rich, dark mauve material, one of our new bookcloths. Finished with a leather label and velvet marker. We also had very suitable paper for the endpapers, these feature old kitchen utencils. To add a richness some of our decorative papers were inserted.
It certainly is a unique and very beautiful book.
Unfortunately I did not have time to read the recipes, a quick glance was sufficient to know that they were fantastic.
Whey I say our papers and bookcloths I am referring to my retail business – Amazing Paper (www.amazingpaper.com.au)
