blue and silver book by svenmarie blue and silver book by svenmarie
This is a little book I made for one of my best friends.

It's 105mm x 83mm x 20mm, has 10 signatures and 200 pages. It's nice and thick! (:

The inside paper was cut into size from envelopes (Envelopes are made out of the most amazing paper! <3). The book is handbound on tapes with handmade endbands, a purple bookmark ribbon and purple endpapers to match.
The cover is a blue paper printed with silver swirls, and the spine and corners are protected with blue linnen. I used the same ribbon as for the bookmark to decorate the spine.

This is the first time I made this kind of cover, and the first time I filed the cardboard for the cover so that the edges and corners are round.
I'm happy with the result! (:
