This book is bound in a medieval ‘limp’ style. Traditionally, the cover would have been made of vellum, and the spine piece from bone or wood. This contemporary version has a sturdy book board spine covered in durable book cloth in a colour complementing the section of Charles Rennie Mackintosh poster used on the cover, a detail from his Scottish Musical Review 1896 piece. The posters have been backed with card for further strength. The turn ins have not been pasted down, as a nod to the original form of binding. This is one in a limited run of six books that featured three different posters, three different spine colours, and two different styles of stitching on the spine, thus each one entirely unique. The pages inside are sturdy 170gsm Flat White paper, made from recycled paper and coffee cups. It’s strong enough to take a light wash and has a lightly textured surface for writing and sketching.

I am a huge fan of art deco and art nouveau, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh is right at the top of my list of favoured artists and designers. There was no question when I stumbled on these posters of his work that I was going to take them home, and make books out of them. The question was what style of book would properly showcase and honour his designs. It took nearly a year of them sitting in one of my paper drawers before the answer presented itself.
