A Wedding Guest Book, Engagement or Baby Shower book, scrapbook or drawing book, with a lovely bird on the soft turquoise paper cover. The lovely deep aqua silk edging makes it ideal for a winter wedding.

Book Details:

The front cover has a large medallion of a bird, sitting on the branch of a tree; on the back cover, is a topiary tree, a white label printed with the word "Nest" in script and parts of a birdcage and wreath. Overall it looks very pretty.

The book is hand-bound with a Japanese stab stitch side-binding. It has hard covers, of book-board, covered and lined in a beautiful paper by Cavallini papers. The paper has a pale aqua-turquoise background, with the design printed in a soft brown color.

The covers have a hinged section, to make them easier to open and less likely to be damaged by frequent handling.

The bound edges are embellished with shot-silk, in a toning shade of deep aqua and golden-brown. A frayed-edge detail shows the golden-brown threads, which contrast beautifully with the paper (see photographs).

The binding is made with strong linen thread in a matching soft brown shade.

The covers are lined with Murano art paper, in a soft brown shade, to match the outside paper. There is a matching dust-wrap at the bound edge. This protects the spine edge of the paper from dirt and dust, but also is decorative. Inside the front cover, the dust-wrap has been extended and cut with a decorative punch, to give an attractive detail.


There are 20 pages (40 sides) of natural-white, 160 gsm medium-weight paper with hand-cut edges. This paper will accept most types of handwriting pen or drawing media, and you can fix photographs on one side of the paper.

The book measures 8.25" x 6" (21 x 15.25cm) and the pages measure 7" x 5.75" (18cm x 14.5cm).

A matching hand-made tassel can be added on request, wrapped with silk or linen thread. See this listing for details:
