The Hunting of the Snark and The Illustrated Editions of the Hunting of the Snark

About this project

Both volumes are bound in black goatskin, with a different colour scheme for each book. The bindings have Ingres endpapers with marbled flyleaves produced by the binder in shades of blue or green and matching suede doublures.

Each binding has squares of hand-marbled leather in shades of blue and green, applied in a map like grid. A broken line, tooled in black, meanders around the squares following the patterns in the marbling.
