Custom Artist Portfolio

Wonder where I've been? I've been buried in the studio with custom orders :)

I've had several inquiries lately about artist portfolios. I'm making one next week with the plastic sleeves which will probably be the last Christmas Present I send out.

But today, I sent out the following custom artist portfolio with heavyweight black pages. I love it!

24 pages of black stonehenge with natural deckled edges
Embossed hinges
Soft leather in grey, white and black
Metal plate inset into cover with engraved name
Sewn with strong black linen thread
Sewn in an Ethiopian coptic stitch so the pages will open completely flat
Spacers sewn into spine to allow things to be added to book
Rounded hollow drop spine

I hope Brynn loves her Christmas Present that was special ordered by her brother and I wish her all the best with her future artwork!

The embossed hinges along the rounded spine

These pages will open flat and look at that awesome drop spine!
Inside of front cover

A page showing the spacers which allow for photos or actual art pieces to be placed inside while still allowing the book to close.
