Gifts for my second parents, as I often call them. My guardians or godparents if you will.
The books are completely glue-less, made out of cardboard stitched together. And a plastic sheet in the windows. The pattern on the ‘cutains’ was hand-embroidered. The ‘landscapes’ are made out of several layers op paper with shapes cut out of them. The signatures and covers were bound together, using the Coptic binding. The covers are made out of several layers of cardboard and plastic sewn together. The books were bound using the Coptic Binding. The books open and close by unwinding the ribbon around the button on the right side.
