Details about the binding by Rachel Ward:

80 x 70 x 35mm

 

Printed in a concertina format with colour photographs of arranged flowers.

Bound with three overlapping boards, covered in fair calf, airbrushed with green and brown acrylic inks over pressed ferns. The lining is green Japanese paper airbrushed in dark green over ferns and the binding is fastened with a wooden peg.

The book is contained in a brown leather drawer box with the title blind tooled on the front and a wooden peg pull. Tree shaped leather covered panels on top protect and secure the book. The leather edged slip case is covered with the same airbrushed paper as the book linings.

My design reflects the title with images of ferns and trees in autumn and winter colours.
