Anatomy book…

Custom ordered book based on journals from top of my offer. Book cover is not changed, difference is in printed pages… Maybe don’t look like hard work but start point was pdf file with low quality, yellow pages of book from 1881. Converting it into higher quality jpg, manually cleaning yellow color from all pages, prepress for printing pages in proper order, hand torn page by page and aging on 611 book pages was take a while… Need to notice that customer was helpful in cleaning pages and converting it into proper format. From 30 Mb pdf file, we got on the end – pictures in 3 gigabytes! Result are very realistic book pages for appropriate book cover…

Work on book cover wasn’t regular if include that is this one of my most complicate book covers ever made. All book elements are handmade… for only two details like rib cage and head tooling I need a days with magnifying glasses on eyes…

The Haunted One…

aLexLibris086

Alex was amazing throughout the whole process from beginning to end. Not only is he a world class book binder, he is a world class person as well. He allowed me to collaborate with him and exchange ideas until we came up with the perfect book together. He guided me away from mistakes I would have made and steered the project in the perfect direction. He communicated with me everyday and sent me pics of the process the whole time, it was very exciting and I looked forward to it each mourning. The book came out amazing. I could not have asked for anything better, it exceeded my wildest expectations and it is worth every penny and more. It is rare to find someone with the skill, expertise and professionalism that Alex has.
At the end he even watched the tracking of the shipment and notified me every step of the way. I will be buying many more books from Alex and he will remain my life long bookbinder and friend. I very highly recommend Alex as your life long book binder as well.
