I'm hoping you will save some of that gorgeous peacock paper. I will definitely want a book with that on the cover! Probably indeed in A6 size, although A5 would be nice. A thin paper inside, and I'd go for red flyleaves and stitches.
But I am not too sure I like the irregularity of the cutouts and shapes that you have made with it here. I think the design itself is already so eyecatching, the cutouts detract a little bit from the design? Even though it is still a beautiful book! But with this design, I'd want all the attention-grabbing in the peacock eyes...
Keep up the good work!
I still have material enough for only 2 A5 (large) sizes left.

Yes , its correct that the Peacock Feathers motif is aesthetically strong enough by itself.
I tried that out to see how 'busy' motifs would look against these spine cutouts.
still experimenting.and observing along the way.
Mock-ups are truly invaluable for such processes.
