bookbinding - poems of Robert E Howard - Copper plate cover

This was a long process. I've been putting this aside since last December and have finally finished it. I love copper. The front cover is made from soldered copper plate. The back cover is tan leather with a beautiful agate marbled endpaper.

The paper is drawing paper with mi-teintes signature guards. It is sewn with black thread (waxed).

The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard I want to sketch in this from The Collected Poetry of Robert E. Howard. We'll see how that goes.
