Bound by Tuttle: The Amazing Bindings of Richard Tuttle May 2, 2013 – Posted in: book arts, bookbinding, Books and Art
One of Richard Tuttle’s latest magical bindings is aptly called “The Raven.” For it Tuttle takes a copy of the 1995 Folio Society edition of Poe’s classic poem and binds it in some black goat leather boards. The boards and endpapers are then “feathered” to give binding the impression of flight. The book is able to stand alone for display.
Here is a sampling of some of his other recent astounding creations:
A copy of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World bound in lamb skin over boards that feature a drug dispensary motif with the titles and commentary printed on vinyl. The endpapers were created by Richard Tuttle for this book.
