This is a commissioned piece.
I love it it looks sooooooooooooooo nice
Wrong, this is a masterpiece!
wow... love it
How did you accomplish the raised pattern for the phoenix? I'm working on a project of my own and I wanted to incorporate a similar raised symbol, but none of the suggestions I found online seemed like they would accomplish quite what I was looking for.
I cut out and shape each piece that makes up the shape of the phoenix.
I glue them to the end board and press it overnight.
Then, I apply the leather and tool and crease around the shapes.
It is a long process, but once you do it enough, you get faster and more accurate.
I am absolutely fascinated by this work. How could I contact you to ask information about commissioning you a similar work?
Thank You very much.
Hi. If you are interested in commissioning a journal from BCcreativity, just send me a note with your intentions.
Wow. That's pretty Brilliant Excelent work on that phoenix figure.
wow, this is amazing! the "flame" bookmark ribbons are a really nice touch!!
That is gorgeous!
I think this is one of your best works, all the details on that bird! you outdo yourself with every book you make. great job!
Wow, it looks amazing!
I want this book!! Is this book you recovered?? Blank pages? For buy :-D
This book was created for a purchaser. It was thier vision. I just made it come to life.
thanks for the reply. I see that most of your books range from $150-200. Other than the cover what makes these books worth so much? On average how many pages are supplied in each?
My books are hand sewn in a 16th century period bind fashion with supported cord, hand sewn headbands and handmade marbled paper. The techniques I use to create my books are techniques handed down from master bookbinders from Italy.
I have done extensive research and many years of training to bind a quality book that will last for many, may years to come.
I have also created some of my own techniques that are incorporated into each creation I make.
I strive to provide not just a journal, but an actual creation that is well made and something the owner is proud to own.
If only I had the cash.... *sniffles*
Your work is stunningly beautiful.
So what book is it? (if that isn't a stupid question)
