H.G. Wells, The Time Machine, 1931
Full natural oasis tight-spine binding with gold-tooled and onlaid pattern derived from one of designer W.A. Dwiggins’s chapter decorations, repeated
to run forward, backward, up and down as a graphic image of the present-future continuum described in the book. Leather colors and Fabriano Roma endpapers were
chosen to reflect the delicate shading of the book’s illustrations and type. 9.5 x 6.5 x 0.75 inches, 24 x 16.5 x 2 centimeters. Created 2008.
Jamie Kamph was born in Princeton, New Jersey, graduated from Mount Holyoke College, worked in New York publishing, and then studied bookbinding with Hope Weil.
She established Stonehouse Bindery at her farm in Lambertville, New Jersey, where she does design binding and book conservation. She was the 2003 winner of
the DeGolyer Bookbinding Competition.
