The Ecuador Wedding Album with Orange features handcarved lettering Mi Media Naranja on the front cover. This translates roughly to “My half orange”. The meaning translates in the same vein as the common phrase “My better half”.
Yellow lambskin embosses over the bride and groom’s names on the inner back cover. Similarly, the same bright yellow leather wraps around the spine and binding cords.
A life-sized orange dominates the cover. Binders board has been built up and then carved away to form the convex rounded orange. Orange leather covers the sculpture. Likewise, white leather covers the orange blossom. Silver wire represents the orange blossom stamen.
Other personalized elements decorate the book as well. For example, the wedding date labels the leaf. Also, two leather page markers include bright tagua beads and copper washers by request. Three glass beads accent the front cover lettering.
I never trust only glue, so all of the orange elements firmly attach to the cover with hidden wires as well.
Handstiched headbands protect the spine ends. I wrap leather cords with thread colors to compliment the color scheme. They are directly sewn onto the binding edges with yellow and orange threads.
A double layer of 55 pound tensile strength fabric reinforces the hinges to ensure strength and heirloom quality. In addition, archival permanently flexible glue safeguards the book for a lifetime of durability.
A solid mosaic of Ecuador maps lines the interior of the Ecuador Wedding Album with Orange. For instance, specific towns and points of travel accentuate the inner covers as endsheets.
