It’s been a plague house here in Bavaria, but we are now almost fully recovered from a heavy dose of the flu (not man flu, not a mere cold, but full-on hideousness). We send healing thoughts to anyone else who has been suffering the horrible bugs doing the rounds recently.
Tosh had been working on a notebook covered with leather to share with you, and has now been able to complete the basic work to create a plain, undecorated version. It is quite easy to do, and I will post photos and guidelines for that shortly. A follow-up post will include a decorative front panel based on the centre part of a 16th century book cover design and decorative (fake) metal hinges. Although the original book is covered with embroidered velvet, the design also works well on plain leather, using a soldering iron to emboss. In this way, you can do quite intricate designs with ease.
See you soon!
