August 11, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

voyageout5-annettefriedrichIn 2011, Annette Friedrich embarked on her goal of binding all nine of Virginia Woolf’s novel starting with her first book, The Voyage Out. Annette bound a 1929 Hogarth Press edition (first imprint of the unified edition) in full orange goatskin. Tooling on the covers is done with platinum leaf and four shades of yellow. The author’s name and title are tooled on the spine in platinum, in addition to two horizontal lines at the head and tail in platinum and purple.


The book is housed in a chemise covered with hand-dyed green paper and matching orange goatskin. The slipcase is covered in a hand-dyed blue paper. voyageout6-annettefriedrich
