This Initial and Cross Wedding Album features personalized details. For instance, the initial is handcarved in a specific font. Next, ivory leather wraps over it for a sharp embossed finish. Then copper capped the top of it.
In addition, a small silver cross wired onto the cover was of importance.
The spine of the Initial and Cross Wedding Album features metallic gold leather. Semi-metallic silver leather accents the raised decorative curve near the spine.
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. In this case, silver and gold thread.
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.
I handripped each page one at a time to create a curved descending deckled edge. Metallic gold handmade papers line the inner covers as endsheets. They showcase a thin layer of handmade rainpaper over the surface for a dramatic and elegant appearance.
