Recently I’ve been working on extra large board books.
This is me sanding the folds in the gutter of each spread. The dimensions of these books are over 20″ to the foredge and over 25″ head to tail. They are serious!
Here is the un-cut finished cover. It’s the clients printed linen. Here is a close up of the spine area
This is before and after trimming. Here is an image of the spreads:
These are prints of the clients work. The board is a nice display. Unfortunately I have no presses large enough to for these books!
So I’ve developed a direct way of pressing them. It’s not pretty, but it gets the job done!
