An illustrated guide to Frigge’s binding technique in her own binding

~ Leather Books.

[Netherlands] [1997]

One of only 12 special copies of a total edition of 180. The 12 copies were printed on Kaschmir cotton paper and bound in soft leather wrap-around bindings by Frigge. With figures in the text after life drawings of binding work by Frigge. 8vo., original soft leather binding by Frigge with one of her layered marbled leaf images on the upper flyleaf, lettered in gilt, housed in the original black slipcase with title and image of hands holding a book in blind. An extremely good copy with very light fading to the spine.

Loose note written by Frigge in white pen plus a hand written note by her on the colophon to a friend nicknamed Vos or Fox stating that the book is bound in Nubuck leather impregnated with wax and that the flyleaf was marbled by her in over 11 layers.
A very clear book about Frigge’s binding technique with excellent illustrations and in a very interesting binding by her.
