Another custom-made book

This coptic bound journal has been made for Anusha Lall. The cover has been made using a paper from the bark of a shrub called Daphne. It has been made in the ancient papermaking tradition of the Himalayan Region and has been individually dyed in vibrant colours in the ethnic shibori style, which lends each paper its uniqueness.
The endpapers have been torn out of sheet of thicker 'Rice Paper'.
Its a large size at 5" by 7.25" approx.
