Custom Photo Album
This custom made photo album was made with 60 sheets of 25 x 35cm Munken Lynx 240gsm paper. The album also includes guards, to account for the bulk the photographs will add. Along with archival acid-free interleaves to protect them over time.
The cover is made using a hand-marbled sheet of paper with a black foiling label. The perfect wedding gift!
This custom made organizational portfolio measure just 12 x 12.5cm and contains an accordion place holder designed to hold small lists.
Made from acid free black card stock, with black brillianta bookcloth on the cover and on the sides of the accordion for strength. The cover is adjustable to accommodate for the growing portfolio.
Dryad Press Notebook
Dryad Press is a poetry publishing house based in Cape Town, South Africa. These A5 notebooks consist of 48 pages of 120gsm Munken Pure paper with 10 90gsm tracing paper inserts, each including a poem from the publishing house’s poet’s collection. The notebook was an accompaniment to a poetry book collection box.
If you are are looking for something a bit more custom like a patterned cover of children’s drawings, your own designed pattern, image or logo. This is the bindery for you.
Each custom printed cover is printed on 300gsm acid free paper bound in a Half Binding, where the spine is covered in a durable black bookcloth and the rest is covered in the printed design. This method insures that the hinge of the book remains strong over time.
An enclosure like a clamshell box is one way to store books and objects in an archival manner keeping them safe from dust and sunlight.
This custom enclosure was made for a collectable, signed, William Kentridge book. Similar to artworks, artist books are just as valuable within a collection and therefore need to be cared for as you would an artwork.
