Book #17

Spanish Ledger Binding

I just finished making this replica of a Spanish 17th Century limp vellum ledger. I used an old parchment document for the cover, folded with turn-ins so that the original writing is hidden on the inside. I constructed the traditional toggle and loop closure elements from strips of vellum.
