gorgeous fabrics

One of the things that I love about creating these books is the wonderful materials that I can play with.
This fabric is a linen with printed images of famous world landmarks.  It's very thick and isn't easy to work with, but I love its texture and the way that it works with the black gabardine and little metal adornment on the side.

This style of book has sketch-quality pages made into signatures, which are then all handsewn to the spine - you can see the long stitching on the outside of the spine.
