Ken Gilbert binds Lear


We just uncovered these illustrations sent us by United States binder Ken Gilbert of his interpretation of our single section Owl & the Pussy Cat.  You may remember that we chose to bind the book in a paste paper that reminded us of green peas. Although Ken has chosen a more elegant interpretation, it also uses paste paper for the cover. The book is sewn link stitch with a paste paper cover.  The portfolio has a four-flap inside to store the book.  The cover of the portfolio is bound in goat skin with a leather panel set into the cover and hand marbled paper.  The panel is tooled in palladium with fair goat onlay for the moon and a green onlay for the boat.
