Designing the Mentoring Stamp

Mentoring Stamp - cover spread

by Lance Hidy
Kat Ran Press, 2007

Bound by Eric Alstrom
2008

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.
