Water by George Erikson


An edition of 30 books, handbound for Nine Point Publishing:
Water by George Erikson.

This is one of the projects that kept me busy during the last few months and after several interruptions and delays, the production of the books was finally completed a couple weeks ago and today is the official publication date. This is a book of poetry which I handbound and then I made a matching Japanese-style wrap-around case for each. If you're interested in more about the process of making these, I posted a bit about these books previously, here and here.

This edition is available directly from Nine Point Publishing.

Rhonda, they look wonderful. You can be really proud of this. I think the wrap around cover is a very nice addition to the book.

I love the Japanese wraparound! Wondering if you could elaborate on that or provide a tutorial?

thanks meanderingpearl and anon!

probably the best (maybe the only) decent resource for learning how to make Japanese cases is "Japanese Bookbinding" by Ikegami
