mollybrooks: butterfly attacked by scissors (Default)
[personal profile] mollybrooks
i just recently finished a bookbinding project for the same wonderful client who commissioned the book of Emerson poetry. this one is a collection of quotations, illustrated throughout with tiny flowers in red watercolor ink (about 500 of them, all told- yowza).

this is also both the widest and (fortunately) the best exposed-tape binding i've ever done-- i'd worried that the stitching would get a bit wonky given the thirty or so signatures between the covers, but it turned out super regular and not wiggly at all! =) evidence mounts that i do my most exacting work in a frothy panic.

thumbnail links to the project at my website gallery.



before starting the project, i submitted a proposal with specs, paper samples, and explanations of what i intended to do- i think it's kind of fun to see that initial design side-by-side with the finished book:
