Bound by Glenn Malkin

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Published by Hand and Eye Editions, 2010
with tipped-in illustrations by Angela Barrett
Limited edition of 20 copies, this being number 3

Bound in full Pentland goat, selectively hand dyed, with red leather onlay across the spine and split to reveal panels of red decorated Tyvec below. Carbon tooling on the covers and on the full leather doublures. Suede endpapers and silk hand-sewn endbands. Presented in a bespoke suede-lined wooden box with a leather title panel to the lid. The binding represents two sides of our own personalities, but in this case the split widens to reveal the evil beneath.
