Things started to get more interesting... I love painting the book edges and I know that Jacek will also like it. I wanted a simple pattern for the decoration that would fit with the content of the book.
My improvised work-table-press :)
More on how to paint the book block edges here, in a post I made some time ago.
And on to sewing the headbands, made of green and ocher silk thread.
Tomorrow... the book clasps!
