Another entry in the Designer Bookbinders annual competition. The book is covered with grey goatskin and decorated with inlaid copper, blind tooling and leather inlays to depict an architectural landscape, reflecting Betjeman’s lifetime interest in old buildings. The leather jointed endpapers are hand-printed and the headbands handsewn.

A drop-backed book box with drawn lines on the linings echos the bold lines of the architecture and completes this binding
