bookbinding

I've been playing around with making books lately. Here's one I made for a friend's 40th birthday. It's a notebook/sketchbook, with a linocut print bound into it. The handmade paper used for the cover came via a friend from Basler Papiermühle, the Swiss Museum for Paper, Writing and Printing. I visited this amazing place in Basel, Switzerland a couple of years ago and was blown away floors and floors of papermaking, bookbinding and printing equipment and demonstrations. Anyway, more on that another time. Here's the book.
