Artistic binding on:

Blaise Cendrars and Sonia Delauney, Trans-Siberian Prosody, Old Stile Press, Llandogo, 2014.

Bound in 2019-2020.

I don't work from a design, I work from a concept, a visual impression, an intangible sense of what the final binding will look like, how it will feel. Rather than choosing a specific design for a book, I create a binding that looks the way the book feels to me. The process is almost unconscious. I don't exactly know why my bindings appear as they do.


The sections are sewn on reverse guards.

The edges are decorated with red and black ink.

Front bead silk headbands.

Bound in black, blue and pink goatskin, with lines of white goatskin inset between the leathers. The binding is decorated with palladium leaf and metallic foil. Titled in gold.
