Experiments with letters

553 Favourites
I needed a new layout for my shop. And since I sell books, it seemed only fitting to make books spell out the name.
The font used is Palatino Black. I had to make a punching-, cutting- or sewing-template for almost all the bindings!
Each of the books has a different binding [list below]. I tried to make it all black and white, but off course, I did not find white wood or monochrome straws.
I liked the experimentation these books required but got a little frustrated with the size of the books and the repetition. I'm happy this project is finished. It took much of my time, but I'm very pleased with the results.

B - Bound on raised white chords with wrapped black linnen.
o - Long stitch through limp faux leather /Medieval limp binding.
e - Classic binding with pressure stamp.
k - Classic whole cloth binding with print.
B - Stab binding with print on spine-side.
in - Long stitch trough a slotted spine with woven cover.
d - Long stitch trough a partially open spine.
B - Coptic binding.
oe - My own combination of long stitch and piano hinge.
t - Coptic with printed spine.
i - Classic binding with balsa-wood and root-wood plated inlay
e - Leporello binding
k - Glue-free Belgium binding with sewn covers.

Wow! This is so inspiring! I've only ever tried classic binding, I just want to have a go at all of these! These are amazing! Also the way you got the letters to align when they were printed in the spines etc. is just so awesome...
