At last Alice in Wonderland is bound. The graphics (by Michael) have been printed on high grade photo paper on an Inkjet and covered with a sheet of acetate. Each graphic was mounted on 1mm grey board. Two sheets of grey board were then cut with windows and black buckram used over all.
The book is only 140 by 110 mm. I spent the rest of the afternoon at the class folding the other two books I have and they are more like 200 by 150 mm which will be much easier to cover. The books are Pinocchio and Christmas Carol. The cover for Pinocchio will be a photo of grand-daughter Maddie who does a marionette dance. We have a video but I want a high resolution photo. In general appearance, it will be like Alice but there will only be a graphic on the front cover. I am thinking of doing Christmas Carol in leather but that is next term's project. I need to get to grips with leather binding anyway so will practice a few sample pieces first. One more class before we break up for summer. I shall miss it. I have signed up for a one-day class at the Tech in Orthodox binding (sort of Coptic) in August. I just hope they get enough takers and don't cancel.
