Using the simple sewn binding technique of Janie’s smaller A6 book kits, this book was inspired by the old books seen in the Oxford Museum archives, a metallic striped fabric stretched over the heavy book covers is enhanced with the smooth faux suede spine fabric, to create a wonderfully textural piece. The modern twist of the spine dangles and beads really sets off the metal hardware of this book. Finsihed Book Size A5.
