What we got for Christmas.

Kia ora

We have recently added some new examples of different binding styles to the Print Cultures Exemplars collection.  They’re so gorgeous I thought they needed to be shared:

Mauchline bindings (pronounced Moshlin – printing onto timber boards): 

Heavenward (left) & A cup of blessings...

Heavenward is from 1889 and A cup of blessings for every day of the year from1888.

Here is a page from Heavenward:

"He satisfieth..."

Sixth day: “He satisfieth the longing soul”

But wait there’s more…We also have a delightful almanac from 1750 – Etrennes mignonnes pour l’an de grace de notre Seigneur M.CCC.L – a very lovely example of an embroidered binding, with handpainted watercolour pictures framed by the embroidery and a gorgeous little case to keep it all safe. 

Etrennes mignonnes...


...with case.


All the best
