Another Australian swap book arrived from Phil of OrtBindery. The structure used to make this little book is called a three-piece binding. The side boards are un-dyed calfskin leather with delicate blind tooling along each side. The tool is from J-B Alivon in Paris. There is dark green suede on the spine with coordinating green and gold Japanese paper used inside for the endpapers.
