Aeroplane photo album

This is a traditional case bound album covered in a shimmery black bookcloth. The bookcloth has a slight blue tinge which inspired me to use the smoky blue card for the inner pages.

On the cover, there is a photograph inset of an aeroplane flying overhead. I found this in a second-hand shop and love the old-fashioned feel it gives the album. Inside I used a linen-textured glassine paper for the interleaves between pages. This light-weight paper would have traditionally been used in all albums but is less popular now-a-days because of its fragile properties. The handmade album measures 24 x 16 x 5 cms.
