Bookbinding - Beowulf
A book I bound as a present for one of my brothers; Beowulf by J.R.R. Tolkien.

I wanted to bind it in a way that was reminiscent of some of the surviving Icelandic Sagas, which (from what I've found) were bound on chords with open spines and had covers made of wood boards covered in leather.

On the interior I've used marbled end papers and typeset all the text myself. It's printed on 120gsm "hammered" texture paper.

I have to say I really enjoyed making this as a change from blank notebooks and sketchbooks!
Long time since I've done much on DA... :(

Been rather caught up in degree work and the like :d

I've also been building a website/portfolio and Facebook page for my brother's photography, if you're at all interested please take a look (he doesn't have a DA profile, so feedback on the site posted here is much appreciated!)

Hoping I'll have more time after exams to post some new stuff etc...
