Masonic Minutes 1858

Hand Dyed Calf in a Cambridge Styled Binding. Black and Red Goat Title Plates, Blind Tooled Stamps.

Minneapolis Lode 19 AF & AM commissioned me to restore three of their precious Lodge record books. This Minutes book details the minutes for the year of Lodge activity 1858. The original binding was completely dry rotted and the pages detached. I restored the pages so that I could re-sew them and then created this new leather binding styled roughly on the original. This binding is sewn on tapes, as the original, and hand dyed to create a fine maple wood appearance….which I thought would accompany the Cambridge styled Panel nicely.
