A magnificent French binding by Robert Wu January 2017
Simon Bussy's Bestiaire, 1927, Paris, large quarto size with 15 pochoirs. Designed and bound by Robert Wu, 2017. Green goatskin with gilding in 22k gold and various colour leather onlays. Top edge coloured in green with gauffering. Inside doublures of suede and cork paper. Handsewn silk headbands. Marbled flyleaves in green by Robert Wu. Housed in chemise and slipcase covered with my own marbled paper as well. Inside lined with blue suede. Extra linen box to house everything. 24×14" open cover dimensions. A sumptuous French binding. I started this project three years ago. Painstakingly, I finally finished it.
