MIRANDA KEMP, designer bookbinder. LEIGHTON, Clare. ~ Four Hedges.
Written with wood engravings by Clare Leighton. 267 x 123 mms. The text block was repaired and resewn using unsupported link stitch with secondary sewing on a continuous linen board attachment. It is a full tan leather binding with hand printed and dyed back-pared onlays, and tooled foil decoration.
“Clare Leighton's Four Hedges is richly illustrated with her own wood cuts, I looked closely at the marks made to produce her wood cuts, the lines and cross hatching, and have made my own version of them, along with leaf printed onlays on the front cover. The edges are decorated with an image from one of the illustrations using reverse transfer technique, and the end papers are prints of leaves from my garden”.
