WOW :yikes:

 

Awesome !  :notworthy1:  :notworthy1:  :notworthy1:

 

That looks like A4 size ?

 

Is that marbled paper too ?

 

Thank you.

 

The book block is Mohawk SuperFine Text Ivory
120gm/m2, 25x38 inch sheets folded and cut to book block dimensions of 6 1/4" x 9 1/2"

 

I don't know the size convention that would apply. Smaller than A4 larger than A5.

 

Book cloth was made from red fabric with marble paper pattern backed with lightweight unbleached mulberry using methyl cellulose.

Version 4

 

I tweaked the proportions of the motif ...

 

reverted to the original narrow width (at the blue dot)

 

fattened the part at the spine (at the orange dot) and also removed the notch there

As a relative newbie here, I feel almost ill equipped to pass comment on this awesome work; however, as you are asking for responses, I feel that version 4 works better than version 3.

Just as a matter of interest, how many man-hours does it take you from start to finish on one of you notebooks.

As I said above: awesome work.

Best Wishes,
David
