New handmade paper books

These little handmade paper books have been in the pipeline for quite a while, and there are hopefully more to follow in different sizes and formats. They are  A6 size and are made from blank handmade paper. They are quarter bound with a leather spine and I have experimented with various ways of processing the papers on the covers – some are have been treated with deco-varnish to make them water-resistant while others have been left plain. I’ve also played around with gold foil designs – the variations are endless.

Part of my intention in making these books, and others that will hopefully appear soon, is to build up stock for a stall at a craft market. News on that will appear at a later date.
