B's wedding book

Colleague B. got married recently. He would be relocating to the UK directly after that, and he'd be leaving TNJ during our vacation -- so we wanted to give him a personal parting gift before we went to Japan.


klik made a book. The outside was made with white linen with a brocade pattern on it -- really festive and 'bridal-like'.


The inside of the covers was covered with washi, with a sakura pattern in blue and gold.


I made the book box to put it in. Outside covered with 'plain' white linen, inside covered with the same washi paper.


klik designed and executed the closing: a white ribbon tied around a mother-of-pearl button.
