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 is from 1889 and A cup of blessings for every day of the year from1888.
Here is a page from Heavenward:
- 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.
All the best
