I like the idea of a historical structure, a stiff-board parchment binding, touched with a bit of modernity by utilizing modern papers in the interior. Binding in red parchment over boards, using the "floating boards" method. Flyleaves and parchment-core headbands in custom, commissioned paper by Claude Braun. Sewing tapes in parchment, but to remain hidden in joint. Cover design and title hand tooled by binder in soft gold. The design on the cover takes inspiration from the "tie-up" featured in figure 57 of The Restoration of Leather Bindings -- note that the design is tooled from the cover through to the flyleaves. To be housed in a custom clamshell box.
