1st papercase book

This was my first papercase book, done in Judy Sommerfeld's Book binding class. (Fall 2007)
Text block - Each signature is individually stained with walnut ink to give it an aged weathered appearance. Mohawk white.
Cover - Brown Cave paper with walnut ink drawings on front and back. castles reminiscent of Howard Pyle wookcuts.
Faux bone clasps (I found that carved PVC pipe looks and feels alot like bone) and hand sewn and dyed endbands.
