Bookbinder of the Month: Annette Friedrich

August 18, 2013 by Erin Fletcher

nightandday-annettefriedrichNight and Day is Virginia Woolf’s second novel and the second book Annette Friedrich has bound for her series ‘on a stroll with Mrs. Woolf’.

In 2011, Annette bound this 1920 George H. Doran Company edition in full yellow goatskin. The design on the covers is tooled with platinum leaf, rose, pink and three shades of green. The spine includes the title and author tooled in platinum in addition to crosses in pink and silver. So far, this binding is my most favorite from the Virginia Woolf series. I love the whirling platinum curves and the scattered bits of color throughout the cover.


The book is housed in a green chemise with matching yellow goatskin. A silver paper cross inlay appears on the chemise, this paper matches the endpapers. The slipcase is covered in rose paper. All papers used are hand-dyed. nightandday3-annettefriedrich
