Dirck de Bray fine binding
goat, marbled paper, gold
A fine binding of Dirck De Bray's "A Short Instruction on the Binding of Books" as part of my final project at North Bennet Street School. The book is covered in full gray Harmattan goatskin with biscuit leather doublures. The decoration includes leather onlays, a top gilt edge, surface gilding, sewn headbands, and marbled paper made flyleaves.
