2011 Winter Swap: KupoKiley

This is a single quire book loosely based on the structure of a Nag Hammadi Codex. It is over one hundred pages sew in a single signature which creates a rounded back and a v-point the fore edge. All materials used in this book were cut offs and trimming from other projects making the book entirely recycled. The leather cover is lined with a handmade Indian paper that features a vine motif. --Kiley of KupoKiley

This looks like a beautiful book, I'd love to see it opened up as the endpapers look really interesting - lucky swap owner!!

It's hard to believe you folded and stitched 100 pages together in one signature, but it sure makes a lovely book! I love how this group is constantly inspiring its members.

Thanks Ladies! I had to press the book for several weeks to get 100 pages into a single quire but I think the striking V shape on the edge was worth the wait :)
