I'll be posting several books today, some of the ones I've been making since my last post. I will post more of them tomorrow. That should catch me up.
This is a really pretty, large sketchbook/album with a Japanese stab binding. The covers are made of davey board covered with decorative bamboo-pattern paper on the front and green mulberry paper on the back. The spine is covered in a beautiful green/gold chambray bookcloth. There is a thin strip of bamboo under the tortoise-shell stitch binding, which is done with olive green ribbon. The front is embellished with a piece of Japanese text (poetry, I think) on a torn piece of dark green unryu paper. The pages are 8 1/2"x11" peach colored text paper with a velvet finish.
Really a lovely book, if I say it who shouldn't.
