So, what was on my desk today?
First Thing this Morning:
In the middle of my messy desk, was my binding board, with this book on it. This is another Coptic-stitch binding, with 10 threads in 2 colours. It is almost identical to the peachy-coloured Birds and Flowers book I showed on yesterday's post. When it is completed it will look like this:
Birds and Flowers, Coptic-bound book.
I love this paper; the photos I've taken never seem to really show it off properly - it is much prettier in real life. I have sold several books covered with this paper and hope the new one will sell quickly (once I finally finish it!).
I removed the binding board from my desk and put it to one side; today I didn't have time for that book.
This is what I did this morning:
A second London-themed Sketchbook...
Pair of London Sketchbooks, with fabric covers, Japanese stab-stitch binding in black linen, leather strip and button fastenings in two different styles.
This is my "London" set of books!
Together with the "Autumn" set of two notebooks and a mini-album, these will be taken to the shop tomorrow, where I am teaching a bookbinding workshop in July.
They will be on display, to encourage people to sign up for the workshop - which is making books with fabric covers.
Later I'll post about what I did in the afternoon... :-))
