Handbound Book in Red, Yellow and Turquoise


One of my many handbound books using some of my handpainted paper.....or as some refer
to as paste paper.




The book block is edged with speckles of gold ink and two ribbons are attached to the spine
to use as bookmarks.




The spine´s bookcloth was cut in a wave pattern ...I tend to use the wave quite often.
I like the shape it gives to the cover.

Cynnie, what can I say but WOW! I have a love for notebooks/journals and always zoom in on them in shops/boutique galleries so I know a thing or too about books! This is stunning and love your detail of the bookmark as that is something I like to add to notebooks also. This is beyond great. TFS. Lynne x
