I recently used this orange paper with gold brushstrokes in a custom book for a couple's wedding anniversary. It pairs beautifully with many papers. For this book, I chose a blue paper on the spine to make an interesting color combination.

Each of the decorative papers is handmade in Nepal using renewable plant fibers. The cream paper used for the pages is also an eco-friendly choice.

Size: 6" x 9"
Pages: 120
Style: Coptic binding
Uses: wedding guest book, journal, sketchbook

Binding:
This book was sewn with orange waxed linen thread in the ancient Coptic binding style, which allows the stitching to become a decorative element on the spine. Pages lay flat when open for easy journaling or sketching.

Papers:
I selected Nepalese handmade papers for this book's covers, gold endsheets and teal guards (the paper wrapped around the five sections of pages). The interior pages are made from a lightly textured cream paper, hand-torn to create a soft, natural edge.

You'll receive the exact book shown in this listing.

All books are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly environment.

About the artist:
Katie Gonzalez studied the art of bookmaking in Cortona, Italy during the summer of 2006. Visiting a medieval bindery, working with luxurious materials, and learning to make paper by hand instilled a sense of traditional techniques into her work. She combines that background with her contemporary graphic design degree from the University of Georgia. She lives and works in East Nashville with her husband and her brindle bullmastiff.
