Regina and Dan St. John from Chena River Marblers came to North Bennet to give a paper marbling workshop. I discovered last year that the stone pattern was my favorite. Proof below.

Don't Look Now and Other Stories - A group of short stories by Daphne du Maurier. One might recognize her story The Birds. Scary stuff.
Set book - A group of binders receive the same text and are required to create their own design for the piece.
My Second Fine Binding - I back-pared brown leather on top of the yellow and then backed-pared the entire brown and yellow piece once pasted to the black background leather. I smoked tooled the DON'T portion of the title and gold tooled the rest.
One of my instructors, the amazing and wonderfully talented Martha Kearsley, taught a simple and strong leather tissue repair. I toned a piece of kizukishi tissue paper to match the original cover leather and traced the appropriate shape to lie over the hinge.
