A System of Architectural Ornament
by Louis H. Sullivan

10 1/4 x 8 5/8 x 7/8 inches

Tube binding sewn on five linen tapes with Ingres Antique endpapers and silk endbands. Cover is full leather goatskin over raised strips. The front has a bas relief of acrylic painted boards set in recess, back has onlay of foil stamped vellum.

"I frequently choose books on architecture and related subjects for design bindings. Results can be realistic or abstract, have dimensional depth, and provide visual and tactile stimuli. I may use new and old materials, from wood to plastics, respond or emphasize the books structure when appropriate - sometimes in an experimental or unconventional manner - and offer the reader/viewer an opportunity for exploration and delight."
