After stumbling upon some skilled book binding and making I've been going at it for a half hour now, and this kind of thing is really pushing me on with how nice its made.

Your stuff really would look beautiful filling a library. A few I notice focus mostly on the cover art, you got the whole thing nice from every angle. 



...all this stuff is making want to take a shot at it myself.

I've just spent hours on the internet looking at various leather journals and books and I have to say that your work is one of the best I have seen. You can just feel the detail, time and care you put into it and it's simply amazing. I've got to ask you. Where did you learn to do this? And also, are your books on sale? Keep up the fantastic work! :)

Thank you so much for this comment! I learned from trial and error actually! Lots of time into it, lots of books created! Now my technique evolved into this form of art! I do sell my books and create custom ones if you ever need it! Feel free to ask me any questions!

Ah, books...The youngsters of nowdays do not really knows the feeling of having such leather books in their hands. Technology is good, but nothing can replace the feeling we have when turning a page of paper.

Well anyway, you have amazing talent in book crafting, sir =)

Oh that sounds so right! It makes me sad to think that bookbinding is an art form that is going to disapear progressively... I'm doing a couple of Faires around the year, and one of the most common question that people ask me is "They are beautiful, but what is the use of it?". I'm always troubled that people don't know the use of a book, but it is now the age of the iBook, the eReader and the iPhone! People have entire libraries at the tip of their fingers! 

The solution is a marketing tool: creating the need for the customer! You suggest to them how this book can be used: Cook book, note book, sketchbook, composition book, journal, diary, personnal organiser etc! 

And a compromise for me with this, is a leather book cover for eReaders and iBooks!

"what the use of it ?" Err..schools do not use books anymore ? Nah, seriously..for pepole
to say this kind of things the problem is worst than reading on a book or a computer but
this is another topic Sweating a little... 

But it's true, nowdays if you do not tell pepole what the object's use is, they do not imagine
it by themself. It's great to see how you found a compromise, even if pepole maybe only see
the "cool" side of leather covers and not necesseraly the fact that it can protect better their
I-books than some "cardboard covers"
The best is always to have some exemples to show, to help pepole imagine what kind of
book they want, and DA is a good place for this with this many skilled pepole out there =)

By the way, do you do other books than "pages" ones ? I mean, is it possible to have a
book-like to store drawings and other pages inside, same system than the cheap ones
we actualy can have in store, but more like your books ?

It can be usefull for photographs, painters or any artist to do their "Book" with their own
symbol, work team logo or theme, for professionals interview. After all, it's way better to come
with a single quality book storing 240 works than four cheap plastic ones of 60 pages each.

I can do pretty much anything that remotely looks like a book. I've done "ring binders" (the kind of snapping rings that holds photo albums and kids use in schools.) But there are limitless options to hold a book togheter, or hold all types of pages and sheets inside a cover. A nice portfolio would look amazing in leather with the company logo on top!

Brilliant, the only change would be the design on the centre and spine of the book if you could manage it.
It would be the 5 pointed star in Riven - will send you a copy of the design soon as you may not know about Riven or even what I am talking about lol.
In all other respects the book would be perfect for my needs, do you have a ballpark figure or would you prefer to see the Riven design first?

let me know.

Kind regards

JD
