Alvey Jones, A History of the Moon, 2006

Fine binding in navy Harmatan goatskin, hammered graphite top edge, sewn silk endbands, eggshell mosaic of the moon on front cover. As an on-again, off-again insomniac, there have been countless nights when anxiety or anticipation have kept me awake. When I think back to certain milestones, I often remember what phase the moon was in, though I might be hard pressed to recall the exact date; for me the moon has always played a significant role as silent witness and companion as well as marking time. 8 x 6.25 x 0.75 inches, 20.5 x 16 x 2 centimeters. Created 2008.

Roberta Hilbrandt has been a student of the American Academy of Bookbinding since 2005, studying fine binding with Monique Lallier and restoration with Don Etherington.
