It would have exposed spine sewing.

The book it’s self would be untrimmed.

The dimensions would be a fold down form A4 maybe A3 at a push.

There would be no use of adhesives.

Grain direction? Thats for experts!

Might have some buttons and beads in the mix.

If it has leather it’s going to be the whackiest leather that can be sourced. Upholstery hides in hideous browns.

If the medium is the message, this object is weaponised, it’s a missile, it’s can’t be destroyed because it’s been made in to a fetish, it’s very handmadeness makes it live forever.

The halflife of a handmade object is a quazillion years.

I was stuck in the house all day waiting for an engineer to sort out the hot water again and a man who wanted to test some bit of a wall for asbestos again. So there is only so much enforced cleaning the house I can take and I decided to play with some tools and I got this little strawberry on to some righteous purple leather and was knocked out by it. This morning I got this cover on to a little book and I am really pleased with the results.

This little book feels absolutely great in your hands and I am very encouraged by it.

I may even get a little group of books together and go and pimp them out at a craft shop.
