~ The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger (MacAdam/Cage, San Francisco, USA, 2003)

I completed this binding in the autumn of 2020. The binding measures measures 236mm (height) x 170mm (width) x 55mm (thickness) and the box 265mm (height) x 207mm (width) by 87mm (thickness). I leave you with some final images of this binding, all taken and edited by myself. The sample board now lives in my collection so I will always have a physical record of this project. It was a pleasure to work on and I have enjoyed the challenges of getting to know the dos and don’ts of working with the bull skin!

    1. Many thanks for your comment, it was such a fun book to work on once I had decided to incorporate the perpetual calendar into the design! Best wishes, Hannah
