 Wooden Boarded Books

Based on a coptic style binding from the 14th Centry, these wooden boarded books incorporate traditional techniques with a modern twist.
We have used a figured ash with a decorative grain for the boards. They have been hand worked, using traditional woodworking skills and lightly polished to produce a decorative and tactile finish.
The pages are made from  quality Strathmore Pastelle Natural which has a light texture.
Great for writing or sketching.
The book spines are covered with quality morocco goatskin leather which can be personalised with gold, silver or blind lettering on request.

We are, at the moment, producing these books in two sizes
 6 x 9" and 5 x 4"portrait and landscape

 Each coptic style book comes in its own velvet pouch. A perfect gift
