A Commission – Liber Aleph in a Fine Binding

DSCN2368

A previous client commissioned me to bind a copy of Aleister Crowley’s “Liber Aleph” for a fine binding commission. I used fine goat skin from England and black foil for the titles. I was very impressed with the feel of the goat when it arrived but hated it by the time I completed the project. The foil and skin did not work well together and I had to work VERY hard to make the two join.
