Commissioned Binding for Booker Prize Shortlisted Entry, 2019 - Collection of author.

The covering leather and doublures are of Fair Goat decorated using craquele techniques with several applications of printed and dyed resists. The base design elements were then emphasised with gold and blind-tooled lines. All edges were decorated with acrylic ink, transfer print, gold leaf fragments and gold-tooled lines. Endbands are of decorated leather as an extension of the edge decoration.
