Description: leather spine with paper and linen hinge attached to maple frame with brass screen; endpapers of handmade papers by Nancy Vachon with leather hinge; sewn on linen tapes.

Binder's Statement: When I began working out the idea for this binding I knew I wanted to work with paper, and I wanted to incorporate as much of the papermaker's craft in the design as possible. Constructing a binding that resembles a paper mold, to house these beautiful handmade papers seemed like an appropriate answer.

Binding is for sale.
