$8.00 - $200.00 Coming soon
A really special Venetian journal to add 'pizzaz' to your expanding library!
We start by carving a small pattern design onto printing blocks and then printing onto our calf-skin leather.
Just as 'there are many ways to skin a cat', there are many ways to sew a continuing pamphlet binding. You will not have encountered this stitch before.
