Design: 40s Flower

I wanted to do some floral pattern and found this. So I had it printed out. It’s a vintage print from the 40s but it’s cool when used on a handmade book cover.

A6 size, 96 pages, hardcover, cotton thread, Coptic-binding, handmade.
I matche dthe thread colour to the overall colour scheme.

I made a pair – brown thread and light grey thread.

I liked it so much I made two books – the endpapers and threads are slightly different.

Maroon coloured endpaper.

Another with grey brown with some faint diamond pattern.

Coptic binding on the spine.

Something old, something new.

Full frontal. A vintage pattern for modern times.
