This exquisite handbound, unlined, hardback A5 notebook is one of a kind. It is 3/4 bound by hand using yellow bookbinding buckram and my own handmarbled paper. It has toning endbands and a satin ribbon. It would make a unique gift for someone.
260 pages of 110 gsm cream paper
Dimensions: L21.9 x W15.3 x D2.4 cm
This book took many hours to make. These were some of the steps in the creation of the marbled paper:
– a bath of Carrageenan moss solution is prepared overnight
– paints are added to the bath one at a time
– the paints are ‘combed’ several times to create unique marbled patterns
– paper is laid on the marbled pattern and then removed, dried and pressed
Thanks for looking at my products and don’t forget that I can make books to your own specifications and personalise the covers – just get in touch.
Made with love and care in Cambridgeshire.
