Custom-made Book

This coptic has been made for Amjad Ahmad. The covers have been made using a subtle and beautiful mulberry paper from Handpaperline. The inside pages are handmade as well. The six signatures have been bound using leather cord. It was a bit tricky to use this cord for the binding. It gives an uneven finish - partly because the cord itself slightly varies in thickness throughout.The cover has a small block-print mounted on two tiny squares of handmade paper from Khadi.
