Afterall, I never became a bookbinder because I enjoyed making case-bindings and boxes.
Opposite at the top is a binding of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" which won First prize in the Argentinian International binding competition in 2014 (EARA 2014).
Before leaving New York in 2013 I was very pleased to be invited to send a binding for the Designer Bookbinders anglo-american exhibit, which toured the UK and the USA.
The next 2 shots feature this binding, "Lens of Crystal", dyed goatskin , with monoprinted endpapers.
The theme of the exhibit is "myths and heroes",
so having sourced a beautifully printed copy of Ovid's "Metamorphoses" printed by Shanty Bay Press, binding was completed in september of last year.
The last 2 shots on the right show details of the front and inside, aswell as dyed skin, tooled onlays, and monoprinted doublures.
I will post more about it after opening night at the Bodleian library in Oxford, UK, July 17th this summer - fingers crossed!
Ive got a few more things in the pipeline, so will endeavour to document and post the progress of those.
