The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde. The finished binding.

The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is finished. Red dots to the back board have been in-laid and the eye panel has been dyed and worked.
The lower right hand panel on the front board was printed (under supervision) by Anne Claire Weber, a work experience trainee from Tolbiac Lycee, many thanks Anne Claire.

The dyeing and working of the panel emphasises the ridges, bumps and creases in the leather.

Red touches to the eye lid adds menace.
