Day 315/365A few Studio Sundays ago I shared some ‘in progress’ photos of a custom wedding guest book I made. I thought it would be fun to follow up and share some photos of the completed piece. I’m really pleased with the finished product and so were they!I especially like the deep purple along the spine, which plays many important roles in this binding. First, it looks good (if I do say so myself!) and picks up the floral pattern on the covers, it really showcases the stitching along the spine and adds a bit of durability to the binding. However, those familiar with the coptic binding, also know that it’s an exposed spine binding. This means that there’s a small gap between the signatures when the book is open. This is just the nature of the binding. But by adding the purple along the spine, it seals the gaps and allows the possibility of tucking paper ephemera and other mementos between the pages!
I love unique projects and welcome custom orders, however holiday season is just around the corner and a busy time! If you have an idea for a special gift, get in touch soon so I’ll have time to make your book and avoid disappointment. To start, just answer a few questions here, then I’ll get in touch with a quote and we can work from there. Easy peasy!
