Geneva Bible 1589

The client of this Geneva Bible asked me to take series of pictures of the restoration process, which included the brief steps of Cambridge on the front and back covers. Just for the sake of it, I thought I should put them on my blog in case someone wants to know how it's done. As you see, it's a no brainer; it's basically the same concept as stencil, and hand-tooling the framing with or without gold at the end.
By the way, this common design is called Cambridge because it became popular among binders in Cambridge in the 18th century.
Well, if you are interested in acquiring this particular Geneva Bible that I restored, contact Arundel Books.
