Loni Diep

Loni Diep, originally uploaded by LoveLeaf Press.

These are images of the book that Loni made at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Telluride. It is a Chinese/English Dictionary that she rebound and covered in red goat leather. The front cover has a leather onlay of a crane made out of dark grey goat leather that was pared very thinly and feathered.
Her endbands were beautiful and completely epic considering the book's size!
She used marbled paper that she had made herself for the inside covers.

Loni's first foray into French fine binding was a complete success!
