Big Book

Hello everyone!
Today I’d like to share with you a very big book I made last month. The style chosen was German Springback. The customer requested A4 size and 4 cm of thickness of the paper. My first thought was: “oh my, this is going to be heavy!”.
The paper chosen was Fedrigoni. This was the stack of paper I used, after cutting it to A3 size to fold it.

The sheets were folded and sewn. Glue on the spine and some trimming done, it was rounded. Then I applied some backing cloth to reinforce the spine.

I finished the spine by applying a couple of bookmarks, some headbands I sew off the book and two layers of paper for further reinforcement. Then I proceeded to make a thin cover which would be the basis for the springback structure.

I applied some layers of 1.5 mm board on the spine to thicken it. On the spine, I glued four fake ribs made of leather. Then I glued two boards (a 2 mm plus a 2.5 mm) and put in on the cover, with the four sides bevelled.

The structure finished, it was time to prepare the leather. It was a huge piece of leather!

I used paste to attach the leather to the book. The folder is for size reference.

Once it was dried, it was time to decorate!

And the book was finished! The weight was about 2,5 kg, quite heavy!

I hope you liked it and until next time :)
