Came out a little rough but it was more proof of concept

Part of a planned five volume series on Napoleon. I am doing The Grande Armee now using the illustrations from Hippolyte Bellangé. 100% cotton paper, gilt edges, custom slipcases. Still playing with the number of pages I can use

While I was once having a go myself, I used some thin leather from an old pair of gloves, as a book cover. I concentrated on the covers, so I used foamboard for the ''pages'', and just painted the edges a suitable parchment colour.

First pass at my Homer by Flaxman - Iliad and Odyssey each includes all 34 original plates done by John Flaxman

I can see some areas to improve but I am getting better
