"Indian Toys binding"

Book of Indian Toys

Lester Capon’s design for Bert and Molly Eastman’s Book of Indian Toys concentrates on the Indian and decorative aspects of the book. He used a ‘pierced vellum’ style, which he says he adapted from a 16th-century technique. The vellum is cut away to reveal, in this instance, dyed papers. The book was exhibited and sold at the Designer Bookbinders’ Flow Gallery exhibition in May 2007.

    His work is so playful yet technically sound.
