New Binding by Robert Wu 2016

Bound in blue goatskin. Colour leather onlays and gold/blind tooling with surface gilding. Edges sprinkled with 3 colour silk headbands. Marbled endpaper in grey bouquet by Robert Wu as well. Housed in a olive green clamshell box lined with elephant paper. Design concept: I want to show David's life as a bookseller and how books enrich his life . Can anyone see the city skyline formed by the books on the bookshelves in the background? The hidden message is this.... Books are David's life and he built his "empire" or city with books. Books are his life.
