Mint wedding card binding

Here is a collection of wedding cards that I bound together into a luxurious book for safe keeping. The binding is based on a long stitch book which would have been used historically by journeymen who needed a sturdy book to keep their accounts in whilst traveling from one town to the next.

The cover is made from an eco-friendly recycled leather which I lined with one of my beautiful hand marbled papers. The hints of mint green in the marbled paper is accentuated by the sumptuous silk ribbon, tying the book closed.

My favourite detail is the stitching along the spine. I love the lines and lines of green thread running up and down the spine.

This handmade book contains 35 wedding cards and measures 15 x 22 x 6 cms.
