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.

Competition result – It’s a stitched wooden cover!

Competitions

The first competition on this site and the winner has been chosen and informed.

The question was what it the item in the picture below:

what_is_this

I gave several hints to make it possible to get the correct answer (a wooden cover for a notebook see next image – or more photos here). I will post a full blog on how this book was made at a later stage.

There were two correct guesses (the second just in time – given that I had to convert the time to where the comment originated). In a random draw the winner was chosen (see output below).

More competitions will follow and the next item to win will be a wooden covered notebook with a Darth Vader cut out on the cover. Follow this blog or the Facebook page to see when this happens!
