Art bookbinding part 2


Me again but with a completely different type of artwork... On November 10, 2011 I wrote a post entitled  " Art bookbinding" in which I mention that my commissioned work would be complete when I did the encasing box for the art book.  Well it's done.  The case is almost as much work as restoring and binding the book... LOL!
The outside of the case is in Nutbuck and the inside is suede. 
I'm very happy with the results and the owner was also very pleased.  This book will be exposed in the " Petit musée de l'imprimerie du Vieux Montréal". A museum dedicated to the conservation of all antique printing material and techniques.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!
