my friend katie

so, i have this friend katie decker who's getting married july 26th. she's also a graphic designer (an amazing one btw), overly ambitious and she's my friend (can't you tell?). so as a wedding gift to the bride and groom, i took it upon myself to make her a special paperlust book! (there was another motive here though) i've been wanting to try a coptic binding method i've been researching and katie's book gave me the perfect excuse!

here's a close-up of the beautiful spine you get with this binding method.

katie was kind enough to screenprint some paper just for me! (she used the yellow fabric sans-ruffles for her wedding invites) the monogram is another one of her beautiful design creations and she had a stamp made specially for their wedding.

after spending...awhile...figuring the coptic stitch out, i decided i hadn't punished myself enough for one night and made katie a little bag to keep her book safe. the paper tendrils in the background are from my last minute decision to deckle the edges of the inside pages.
