Bound in the French technique in bright blue goat with cover design created by incision and tooling. Design elements include hand-sewn silk endbands, colored top-edge, leather hinges and custom paste papers for the pastedowns and flyleaves. Titling is hand-tooled in palladium down the spine. Bound in 2009.
I found the woodcuts of Clare Curtis so delightful that my inspiration came directly from her illustrations, particularly the seaweed. The spine of the goat makes a subtle horizon across which the seaweed lay — abstractedly, as parts are slightly colored and parts remain the same, sizes change, parts are unformed.
