Kosmikos Society Book by Marenne Kosmikos Society Book by Marenne
This book was custom ordered to be a farewell present to a university society called Kosmikos. The shape on front is their logo. It's cut out of several layers of 'Zaans Bord'; recycled cardboard made by an old fashioned paper mill thats still operates in my area. The paper is Biotop FSC certified 'naturewhite' paper. The book was bound following some strange combination of the German binding and Classic binding with rounded spine.

- More information about me,
- A blog about all of my hand-bound books.

Thank You!
As you might see in the bottom photo's, I've cut the shapes with my electronic cutter. I glued sever layers of cardstock together to get thick coverboard. I actually don't know what the paper is, I bought it off a bindery that was going out of business...

Hmm I don't know yet. Could be a facebook follower request or a kiriban request. Or maybe just cause I'm feeling generous. I've just had one in December though so it might be a while. Hang around to catch it. :)
