Sketch book - Blue paste paper and vellum
Every element of this book has been made by hand in our studio. We have cut and folded the paper, pierced the sewing holes, sewn the book together, cut the board and hand crafted the cover. We have even made the covering material itself, a striking and hard wearing 'paste paper', which is here brought together with a spine covered in reclaimed parchment from an old deed. The paper we have used for the block of the book is a high quality cartridge and it takes a fountain or dip pen well without bleeding. The fifty pages have been sewn with linen thread onto tapes, so that the book will open flat on a surface as you write, or sketch or draw. Measure 215mm by 155mm.
