(Last of the) Monkeys Flat Back Book
March 24th, 2014 | Link
I love this playful monkey print paper, but unfortunately this is nearly the last of it from my stash. I purchased it from Kozo Arts, a bindery and specialty paper store down on Union Street, but they closed a couple of years ago and I’ve never found anyone else that carries it. Sad panda is sad.
I was lazy on this one and I regret it — I didn’t have any commercial endbands that worked with the book cloth or paper, and I was low on hemp twine for making them, so I used what I had (from Cotlin book cloth) and the texture and color are not what they should have been. This is what happens when making something becomes more about finishing it than the process of creating it.
Finished size about 6-1/2″ wide by 9-3/4″ high; 160 pages in French Paper Co. Speckletone text (70 lb) in True White.
