This publication is a series of interpretations on the theme of water, a limited edition (500) fine press print by Incline Press.
I completed this binding for the Designer Bookbinders’ International Competition 2009. It is among the 125 bindings selected to be exhibited in the Bodleian Library, Oxford UK and the subsequent tour in the US. The flexible covers are constructed of strips of laminated goat skin and dyed parchment. Edge detailing is tooled with a pyrograph pen on parchment and have pyrite onlays. The binding is housed in a painted paper-covered box with hand-written title “Water” raised-gilt in palladium.
