50th Birthday Book

Orders for bookbinding come few and far between these days, so when they do I jump at the chance, especially where there's a fun element in them.

This one, in it's gorgeous peacock blue cover matched the foil perfectly. The lettering was foiled both on the outside plate and the inside page.

Japanese binding is most suited to loose leaves as there is no need to sew sections together and the raw edges at the spine binding can add to the decorative feature.

These books or albums can be made as guest books or photo albums depending on the paper inside. This one is A4 in size and has 110gsm paper in. The paper is thick enough for guests to write their stories in and not have any 'bleed through' no matter what pen is used.

I love making personalised books and wish I did more. Sadly, the price of mass produced books makes orders come few and far between....except when people want something EXTRA SPECIAL and are prepared to pay for the time and effort bookbinders put into each one.
