fantastic work and 'Nautical Steam Punk' is about the best title i've heard, what on earth does it mean though?

Wonderful - I have to say I prefer the understated design of the back cover, though the compass star is very impressive too.

mmmnnn how I want to commission you to leatherbind my trilogy when it's all printed. Can you rebind a softcover book into a leatherbound volume?
Reply
:iconbccreativity:
BCcreativity Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
You can get it printed on whatever stock you want and then I can bind it traditionally.
That would make it awesome and more of a priceless item to you.
Just a thought.

Wonderful! Is it possible to do a cut out cover? Like have the cover bound in leather with a square cut out to reveal the central image on the underlying page? I'll have to compress the image onto one layer for the printing, but ideally, the cut out style is what I'd envisioned for the cover design... :D

:iconbccreativity:
BCcreativity Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
It can be done. It is very difficult though. Especially if it is leather bound and the opposite side is marbled paper.
The die cut has to have either a panel insert or a groove cut to allow for fold-in.
I hope this helps.

I'm not hoping for marbled paper, just a plain parchment style inside, if that makes it any easier?

I think this is the most high-quality, technically astounding steampunk book I've seen. Not to mention the design is awesome! I especially like the marbled endpapers and the handsewn headbands.
Your dedication to craft always inspires me.
