A Handmade Guest Book, ideal for a Wedding, engagement party, bridal shower, christening... Especially great for a "venue wedding" at a Tropical location!
The covers are in a very beautiful shot silk dupioni; it is woven with aqua thread one way and a soft gold the other, so it shimmers in the light and appears to change colour, according to the way you are looking at it.
The edge of each cover is trimmed with a soft aqua mulberry paper, which has silk fibres in it and is printed with golden sprays of bamboo. The cover linings are soft aqua Canson art paper.
The book is hand bound in golden linen thread, with a hybrid Coptic / French Longstitch binding. The binding is made on the fold of each page section, allowing the book to open out flat all the way through.
Inside, there are 40 pages of a gorgeous buttery-cream text paper with a laid finish. The pages have hand-torn edges to give a slight deckle finish.
This paper is suitable for many types of pen, though I wouldn't recommend using a fibre-tip/marker pen, as the ink is very dense and may bleed through.
The outside measurements are 19 x 19cm (7.5" square) and the pages are slightly smaller.
You can personalise your book, by adding a custom-made label or bookplate, or perhaps a hand-tied silk tassel. For more details, see the Labels and Add-ons section of my shop.
I bought this very beautiful silk fabric and was desperate to use it for a lovely book. It shimmers wonderfully in the light and has a gorgeous silky feel. The mulberry paper is a piece I have had for a long time - it's really lovely. By a wonderful coincidence, these two great materials match perfectly - I had to put them together. A golden linen thread and buttery coloured pages have created a beautiful blend of aqua and gold, with a hint of the exotic.
