Book Cover

I spent yesterday afternoon with Tom O’Reilly at the Little Egret Press. Tom showed me the process of hot foil blocking using the design I had engraved. It takes a while to get the correct heat and pressure worked out but we got there in the end. Tom was kind enough to donate cloth in several different colours and even two bits of leather which look absolutely beautiful. I have not used leather before but I managed to make the cover below – using wall paper paste which help to make the leather maleable. You beauty!
