Trade Tokens of British and American Booksellers & Bookmakers
Bird & Bull Press, Henry Morris 1989
9 3/8 x 6 1/4 x 1 1/8 inches

Coptic sewing structure with waxed blue linen thread and Canson Mi-Tientes endpapers. Each cover is 3 pieces of acrylic joined with paper edges. Eleven coins are sandwiched between the acrylic layers. The acrylic was prepared by Greg Young.

"I bound an edition of 300 copies of this book in 1989 (1/4 leather with paper sides). Each book was accompanied by a set of eleven tokens (coins). This unique binding is an experiment for me, quite a departure from my usual traditional designs and materials."
