This week's image was taken part way through  last weekend's workshop (Franzband Part 1) - my book is the one with the red headbands. The Franzband is a very exacting technical binding with the boards laced-in before any covering materials are applied so that any errors or blemishes are difficult to remedy or disguise. I made things doubly difficult for myself by choosing a smooth leather for the spine and a plain paper for the covers that show any faults for all to see. After completing Franzband Part 2 this weekend, I'm a little disappointed with what I've produced but will plug away at the leather onlays that are part of the cover design in the hope that I can make some of the more obvious flaws less apparent.
