Of Mice and Men
Illustrated by Illustrated by James Albon
The Folio Society

Full leather flush joint structure. Hand-dyed fair goat, with hand dyed inlays and variegated gold leaf tooling. Acrylic ink and sunago decoration on all edges. Variegated leaf leather endbands. Hand-dyed, leather-jointed endpaper, with sunago leather doublure and hand-painted flyleaf. Companionship and isolation are explored in the design. The idea of something good being tarnished, but still shining despite difficulties, is conveyed through the tooling and sunago in variegated leaf. Hand-cut leather marks add tactility and roughness to the design which echo the illustrations inside the book.
