This was the christmas present for my sister (I’ll make a bookbinding expert out of you Marianna!) who is an insatiable bookworm. She was nagging continuously that I havent bound anything for her so after the enormous pressure I cracked and decided to end the murmur for good!I chose to bind this book for 3 reasons- 1)It was suitable for a binding I wanted to reproduce 2)She likes the novels of that period and 3)I bought it cheap although it was a good edition (!)
And here’s the binding I used as reference. It’s one of my favorites because of it’s simplicity and elegance.
