Hand dyed goat with Panel motif

DSCN2245

Weeks of restoration were needed to dis-bind, clean, and repair the thin aged paper. Once I repaired it I was able to put it in a hand dyed and shaded calf skin leather binding with paneled and adorned designs elements. I wanted the titles to look like they came right out of the late 1700’s and the cover itself to look reminiscent of a door to a Masonic Lodge in some wealthy part of London from that time.
