About this project

Panel binding using fair calf, dyed in earth tones and decorated with impressed or printed cloth, leaving areas of gilded paper visible in between.
Printed calf doublures and paper flyleaves.
Inspired by broken Greek pottery and the Japanese technique “Kintsugi” where precious metals are applied to a repair to enhance it.
