Suede covered binding with inlaid agate stone.

This binding covered in reddish brown suede echoes the subject of nature. Edges are burnt and the front cover features an in-set agate stone. What’s special about this binding is that it was the very first of my bindings that won an award. That was in 1995, the Designer Bookbinders’ annual competition which I had entered for the first time and which was exhibited at The British Library in London. Another binding of mine also got a Highly Commended certificate at the same event.
