Large period prop book

We were challenged by the request to design, print and make a large Medieval style religious book for Todd Margaret series 3.

The dimensions had to be 15 inches high, 12 inches wide and 4 inches deep, far larger than any production print book to wrap around.

We bought a few large atlases and guillotined down the pages to a uniform size and bound them together. Printing our design onto parchment paper, with a blue leather cover and gold vinyl produced surprising results:

Gold spray paint on the page edges finished off the effect with a thin dividing ribbon.
