Of Mice and Men

This year’s Designer Bookbinders competition was Of Mice and Men. I’ve done a James Brockman style concave spine, quarter bound in leather with cave paper boards. The endpapers are cloth jointed marbled paper, the end bands are hand sewn.

The solander box is in green buckram with navy blue silk moire sides & blue backcloth on the trays, roughly matching the green leather / blue cave paper.
