First rounded and backed case binding

The studio also has a number of students that are beginners. Amongst these is Ella Kilgour.

This is Ella's first rounded and backed case binding. The binding is in 1/4 cloth with hand printed, soft plate off set cover papers. Ella took the initial image on her camera phone, using various computer things we were able to make up some plates for printing.

For a first rounded and backed book I am impressed. The use of the materials and the print work is fine, and shows what can be done with simple techniques if applied with care and deliberation.
