Gothic Binding (1300-1600)
This was my very first attempt to make a Gothic binding and I loved it! Making the brass furnishings perfectly straight proved to be quite a challenge but I’m happy with them for being the first attempt and for being under time pressure when I made them. Gothic bindings were often elaborately decorated with blindtooling, metal furnishings, fastenings, endbands and painted edges. On my book I chose to cut back on the decorations and fastenings but I couldn’t resist making the beautiful braided leather endbands which is one of the many gorgeous types of endbands that were common on these books.
Must.. make.. more!
Gift from MattanaMaya No.3: Nautically Lost
The third Gift out of the studio for a friend of a colleague and a business partner-to-be. Upset from the factory-made journal he purchased, the studio offers him a chance for it to be reborn as a semi-handmade one.
Charmed with real leather and nautical accessories, the studio keeps both elements and gets rid of all the rest. Replaced with wornout-looking watercolor paper, the journal is bound with ‘Waterfall Stitch’ by Keith A. Smith using the fine waxed linen thread which will last for at least a century. The pocket at the back, inspired by Molskine’s journal, has been added by the owner’s request.
Real leather with embossed element.
120 pages, 275 grms. Canson watercolor paper soaked in coffee for battered-looking effect
Commissioned for Oreo Mozz
One-off Edition: April 2014

I was recently given this amazing French book by Rébecca Dautremer, and I just had to post some pictures of it. It has nearly 100 laser cut pages, and I cannot believe how intricate and how tiny some of the laser details are. The effect is much like the current experiments in ‘book excavation’ or the work of Brian Dettmer. I have to say, it’s inspiring me to think about what kind of effects I could achieve on the laser cutter that I have access to. I’ll have to check out what it does to paper!
