This is an old blurb from my Auckland bindery, from twenty years ago!
These books are unique because the wooden boards (Swamp Kauri) are scarce and hard to source. Peter Young, woodworker of Auckland, makes these for me. The method of sewing construction is overly time-consuming but very strong, and went out of favour around 1780. I use vegetable-tanned goat skin leather to cover the spine.
Acid-free paper only.
