An artists book, a timeless design, a traditional art form. This limited-edition, handmade book is a luxurious item in a modern minimalist style. Design binding is the form of bookbinding that combines traditional skill with a contemporary aesthetic. This is a collectible item, a luxury gift for yourself or someone else.

"News" is an illustrated book bound in gold using the criss-cross binding technique. The text, written by Rudi Krausmann, is illustrated with black and white drawings by Garry Shead, a well known Australian artist. "News" was included in the "Under Cover Story" exhibition at the Craft NSW Gallery in the Rocks, Sydney, a joint exhibition with renowned bookbinder, Sabine Pierard, and fellow artist Penelope Lee.

My bindings have been exhibited in Australia, France, and Japan and my work is included in the State Library of NSW rare book collection.

The binding is made from gilded boards and a paper covered spine, bound with white linen thread. The cover is textured on the inside and smooth on the outside, finished with traditional shellac.


22.5cm x 18.5cm (approx 9" x 7"). 128 pages.


Please contact me for information about this item or any of my bookbinding. I appreciate that many people are not familiar with contemporary bookbinding and I am happy to answer any questions.
