standing at the bench and cutting out letters

I am cutting out book titles for my Geordie books and every title is cut out about four times, dies are made for the correct spacing, letters are pasted to leather so the leather can be pared and the coloured leather can be dropped in and pressed. I have started to paste the letters on to a Tyvek backing paper as this means I can use them again.


This is the growing pile of covers that have be pared cling film has a million uses in bookbinding.


This is titles that needs cutting. My hope is that I’ll paste out the letters, put them on the boards and after a pressing and some water spraying the paper / tyvek will slide off. It’s a theory.


The great thing about all that work I did about making a gazillion books at once is that I can just reach to a shelf and pull down a pile of them ready to go to work.
