I bought a dozen small scraps of bookbinding leather last year and never really got around to using it. They are really small – about 20cm square, so are only good for small books, infils and the like.
I drew the symbol from an asemic character I had been playing around with, cut it out of thin card and glued it to the front board before gluing on the leather.
The the edges were carefully ‘worked’ with a bonefolder to get a good bond and create the clean line around the character.
The banding on the spine is fake – those are strips of card and not raised sewing.
The endpapers are a very wrinkled handmade paper. I didn’t make this paper but it has been sat in my scraps box for ages.
So how small is it? 86 x 67 mm actually, just enough to sit in my palm…
