N.b. The Boss Dog's printing is almost complete, and will have been more than worth the wait. Like a fine wine or beer.
Binding 1, Dorfner/de Gonet style:
|Top edge in graphite with hand sewn endbands. The image also shows the open joint structure of the Dorfner/de Gonet style|
|Collaged doublures and flyleaves with dilute colored paste washes. Base of the collage is Collin's original text in German, with onlays from articles and books on topics referenced in the book that were written by Collin.|
I was inspired to try this by some of the work of Mark Cockram, but mine pale in comparison... Still, I think they work here.
Binding 2, Danish millimeter style:The Danish millimeter is best described in English by John Hyltoft who presented on it at the Guild of Book Workers 1995 Standards conference (starts on PDF page 33). See his presentation handout here.
Spine covered in salmon parchment with pastepaper boards, invisible salmon parchment corners.
I describe making the salmon parchment here. It was very nice to work with and I still have lots...
|Pastepaper doublures and flyleaves that continue the dark to light progression from the cover.|
Top edge in graphite with endbands of pastepaper wrapped around a thread core.
|Detail of salmon parchment and pastepaper at spine.|
If anyone who downloaded the sheets would like to share their binding, send me an email using the "contact" link at top right. I'd love see and perhaps even share...
