bookbinding - gold leather & muslin longstitch


I pasted a cut of muslin fabric to this metallic gold leather. The muslin is over-sized and can be folded into the book or left to hang when book is closed. The fabric is out of the way when the book is opened.

The binding is a longstitched limp leather binding.

The closure is a sheer ribbon that enhances the gold, but doesn't clash with the muslin.

There are 160 pages (320 both sides), the dimensions are approximately 6" x 5" x 1" (16 x 13 x 2.5 cm).

I was inspired by the glamour of the gold when mixed with the simplicity of the muslin. They belong together.

closed another top, more muslin back and over flap open, brilliant white paper

I have this listed @ my artfire store.
