Another Bible, this time my own

mybible1

There is a saying to the effect that the shoemaker’s children are the poorest shod, and this may apply to a bookbinder’s books too. I had been meaning to rebind my own Bible (or one of them) for a couple of years now, but never found the time for it. But because I wanted to experiment with some gold foiling and blind foiling techniques, I finally made the time for it. I also went a bit wild with colouring the end pages, but it gives one an idea of what is possible!
