A Custom Wedding Album
A custom album, tabbed for adding photos. Made of a heavy Stonehenge paper and bound in black and purple morocco, it weighed in at 18 pounds!
Board edges tooled in silver
A closeup of artwork for the front board, created in black and white and sent to a die maker for a metal stamping die.
The die, mounted in a converted C&P press
The textblock, sewn on cloth tapes and ready to case in.
Tying up the spine to help leather form around the raised bands.
The boards were also tooled in blind, where an impression is made in the leather but with no silver or gold .
