Green and Red Mums Flat Back Books
April 14th, 2014 | Link
A few of the books I made recently have hand-sewn silk endbands, from the book Headbands: How to Work Them by Jane Greenfield and Jenny Hille. They aren’t difficult to do and add a nice finishing touch to books like these two, which have a luxe feel to them. The green chrysanthemums paper has shown up before here, notably in the woven chain guest book I made for my friends Jane and Patrick — she picked the paper and I keep getting more of it. Last time I ordered some in the red, too.
These are a little smaller than the others because I had to trim the sections — the ends of the sheets were damaged in shipping. Finished size is about 6-1/4″ by 9-1/4″; 160 pages Mohawk Superfine Eggshell in Soft White; red mums and green mums Chiyogami papers from The Paper Place.
