Cased-In Flat Back with Maziarcyzk Paste Paper Cover
February 26th, 2014 | Link
Sometimes I try to break out of my Japanese paper rut and pick up something a little different. The cover on this cased-in book is a paste paper by Claire Maziarcyzk, purchased from Talas (it’s the “Stainless Graphite”). A bit of an indulgence at $12.25 for an 18-1/2″ x 24-1/2″ sheet (only enough for one book plus some scraps) but handsome. One of my coworkers once lamented the lack of “man-papers” in my repertoire and this fits the bill.
Finished size about 6-1/2″ wide by 9-3/4″ high; 160 pages in French Paper Co. Madero Beach Speckletone text (70 lb). End sheets are the lovely Hannemühle Bugra I bought last fall.
