The Wonder of Dominic Riley


As a fantastic treat, the spectacular and extraordinarily talented Dominic Riley taught my class how to make historic Cambridge panel bindings in September or was it October? He was with us for an entire week. Too much can be said about how amazing this experience was and how brilliant Mr. Riley is so I cannot get into it. Simply put - all was amazing.



The Cambridge panel binding was a massed produced rough and tough style and so we produced it similarly. It was the first full leather binding I had ever made.
