This book has been handmade by Edel Hopkin. Edel has been fascinated with bookbinding since she was a teenager. She further developed her passion whilst living in Asia and working with the wonderful Japanese papers. After completing an apprenticeship in bookbinding in Cambridge, Edel developed a beautiful range of handmade books and started running bookbinding classes herself. Edel now experiments with a variety of bindings and coverings – Coptic with Chiyogami, case-bound with traditional Cambridge-made Cockrell marbled papers, contemporary leathers with Chiyogami, traditional leather with Chinese fastenings. This range of mini-books is inspired by the works of current Japanese book artists and is a way of preserving and making use of even the smallest pieces of paper and leather. 

Dimensions: Approx. 11 x 15 x 1.5 cm
