The Four Gospels. Overlapping boards to the spine.
With the leather on the spine, leather joint in place and the doubler wrapped around the inner boards it was time to work on the outer boards. The aim is to have the boards meet in the middle of the spine. This will provide a large flat surface for the art work and stuff.
View of the book laying down with one of the outer boards in place. The work looks a bit rough because this is the maquette, all the practice and working out is down on this before I go on to the real books.
View of the board (blue leather) overlapping the spine (green leather) Don't worry this is not the finished colour scheme.
