Review

‘… Although it may seem ‘quiet’ it requires careful attention. The subtle allusions to textile patterns illustrated in this fascinating history are so delicately applied that they become totally integrated with the surface of the grey suede front and interior ‘screen’ flaps which open out. … It is a binding which grows on one and could well last the test of time and fashions without being dull. …’ – Bookbinding Review by Faith Shanon, Fellow of Designer Bookbinders
