Bookbinder of the Month: Hannah Brown

February 3, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


The Somme: An Eye Witness History is a Folio Society edition published in 2006 and bound by Hannah Brown in 2007. Boards are covered in pale turquoise goatskin with a dark grey goatskin spine piece. The covers were machine-sewn with red thread and hand-tooled in carbon and Moon gold with handmade finishing tools. The ribbon bookmark was hand-tooled to indicate the scale of map depicted on the boards.thesomme_hannahbrown2thesomme_hannahbrown3
