My newest commissioned Arctic binding was just finished. The project started two years ago and I had to wash the entire 300 pages of this 18th century book as the pages were dirty and moldy. It took me more than two months just to wash, flatten and conserve all the pages before the binding could commence. The binding is bound in the full French technique that I was trained in. The French Reliure d'art technique is considered the most refined and beautiful bookbinding technique. I was happy with the way the design turned out. I was also trying out my new decorative panel technique I called "Faux Ammolite" to emulate the northern lights effect. I hope I have achieved it if you see it in person and panel animates and sparkles with colours under light. The egg shell panel turned out beautifully too. They all fit like a puzzle. Interior flyleaves are lined with my own special marbled paper.
