Bound by Eric Alstrom
Dimensions: 9 1/8” x 5 7/8” x 9/16”
Description: Bound in full leather using Sün Evrard’s Simplified Binding with leather inlays and onlays and bind tooling and leather endbands. Blue Hahnemuhle Ingres and off-white acid-free endpapers.
Artist’s Statement: For this binding, I used the motif of Lance Hidy’s mentoring stamp along with some of the elements from his design sketches and layout. I reversed the orientation of the hand and faces so that the profiles and pointing finger would invite the reader to open the book.
