Velvet bound book with decorative brass corner

Fabric covered books have been around for centuries, though they are not as durable as leather bindings some striking examples still survive. Inspired by Medieval and Tudor velvet bindings this book features a cotton velvet binding in silver blue decorated with a single brass corner held on by handmade brass staples. Inside, the text block is made up of pale blue pages and snowflake themed end papers, a diary any winter royalty would be proud of.

Velvet is a beautifully tactile material to bind in and the photo does not do it justice. Velvet books start at £20.
