last year, i had a class (pre press for graphic designers) where the teacher taught professional book binding at the end of every lesson, and i immediately got obsessed. i made this a while ago and thought i would share it:

the block has 80 or so pages i think, it is made of thick yellowish natural paper and the book end paper is red, the same paper as the tulips.
it's a hardback covered in fabric.
the size of the closed book is about 22cm x 23cm







thank you for looking
i'd love to hear your comments!
