These beautiful hand-bound books are created by the talented Phil Winskill of York Bookbinding, specially for my kits.
Embroidered book covers have been created throughout history and I felt this narrative design suited this application well.
Constructed using traditional hand methods in green Atlantic Bookcloth to match the embroidery, and with gold-foiled spine title, either The Owl and the Pussycat or A Lakeland Odyssey. They include high quality plain paper pages, edged in pure gold leaf, reproduction heritage design end papers and a silk marker ribbon. The Owl and the Pussycat book has a print of the Owl and Pussycat poem inside the front cover.
They also include a conservation safe book-board on to which your completed embroidered panel can be mounted ready to be applied to the front of the book. Full printed instructions for this process are supplied.
