Weehoo, I have made another book! It has been pretty long ago since I made a book and since I've worked with leather. So this was a nice reunion Smiley

It has hand bound pages in A3 size, white blank pages to be filled with photographs and various memories they might want to save Smiley With a cover in leather and a clasp-kind-of-thing with also a leather strap and a buckle. The design on the front is not made by me, but I have burnt it into the leather. And of course it has all been patinated to look like this thing has existed for quite a while  (because they feel like they have known eachother since forever you know, or maybe because they are really old vampires... Hmmm.)








(Right-click and view for a better look)


Done, and preparing to send it away!

Thanks for stopping by! Cheesy

What a marvelous job. I rocked you! My dad taught me how to tool leather, so I know some of the processes. You did a very fine job with this. I like how you aged it, too. Very interesting design you chose, as well. Kind of like a family tree? Perfect for a photo/memory book. I like the use of the studs, too. It does look like something antique that you might find in an attic. Well done. Make me one? Just kidding. I could not afford it. But wish I could.  Grin

So marvelous!! You did a great job with all of the details and the aging process. It looks like it came out of Middle-Earth Smiley.
