Today I worked on another custom order baby book. This one is a photo album and has heavier weight pages.
The cover of the album is covered in green bookcloth and each folio of pages is wrapped in a brightly colored paper. This is not only decorative, but it also serves to add space between the pages for the addition of photos.
The album was bound in a double needle coptic stitch, which allows the pages to lay flat when the book is opened.
I used six different colors of waxed linen thread for the binding, to add more punches of color.
I have some more work to do to complete the book – I’ll be doing some custom collage work on the inside pages.
