The story of this book (and more images):

This cover is one of the first things I cut with the scroll saw. For a long time I did not know what to do with this image until I decided to make books and wooden covers seemed to be an excellent idea. This cover was thus laying in my workshop for almost a year with several other items that I like but have very little use.

For some reason I really enjoy binding books, especially using coptic stitching. My shop is thus slowly filling up with handmade books. Some of these I don’t want to sell (like the one in this competition) and I am therefore having this competition. I also need to generate some traffic to my online shop and this seemed a good way to do so (any shares on any social or other media would thus be very much appreciated).

I have loads of ideas of what to cut on the front cover. Most of these will be my own design or modifications of images that I like.The Darth Vader image in on this book is a bit of an exception since I was mostly testing my scroll saw at the time and wanted to cut an image rather than design one.

I will post some of my new projects on this site, including new books with some of my designs. I would, however, like to do more commission work and if anyone wants a custom, hand made, book or notebook do not hesitate to contact me with your idea.

Technical details:

Size of book 148 mm x 210 mm (5.8 x 8.3 inches) – A5 international paper dimensions.
14 signatures (140 pages)

The pages are bound with Coptic stitching displayed on the spine – this goes well with the general look of the covers.The stitching is done with bees-waxed embroidery floss. Coptic stitching allows the book to open completely and lay flat when writing/drawing/painting.

  1. My answer is Wood x Whoever wins will have a very unusual giveaway! Good luck everyone! Have checked out your website and have seen what appears to be be something I have been doodling for years (like 50!) and has become known as Nikki’s Logo!! It’s everywhere, on all envelopes I sent, every card, I don’t sign my name now!, official documents oops! and everywhere else you can think of! It’s perfect for me!

  4. I was going to say Maple wood as most of it does look like it, but you dont confirm it in all your items (I’ve had a very long look at your wonderful work) So I too would say WOOD 🙂
