Plein Air – Beauty Bound – finished!

beautyboundcover

The book is finished! I got out my saw and hammer and nails to finish off the cover with a good hinge so that most of the pages open flat. It’s a good solid structure that can stand upright on the shelf. The spine is finished in suedene. One the words “wild garden” appear on the cover. I wrote the title page Beauty Bound on the first opening page.

    Looks great! I’ve never tried hinges on handmade book covers, I love how they look

      The hinges are from the hardware store. But I also used heavy gel medium to glue them, and had to use my Dremel cutter to cut the nails .
