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.

  1. That is just sooooo beautiful! A "no-brainer"... yah, sure :-) Seeing this made me want to research the Geneva Bible a bit -- quite an interesting story behind its creation. I wonder how many are still around. I wonder, too, about the condition of the text block and what kind of work that might've entailed.

    Anyway, gorgeous work!

    1. Thanks, Todd. I don't know how many copies still exist in the world, but some are worth thousands of dollars. I don't know the value of this particular copy is, but he text of this copy is complete and is in the most excellent condition (though I had to repair a few pages that had scotch tapes.) I hope it will find a good home soon. ;-)

    1. Thanks, Tin. I do feel sorry for not making more videos, but I just haven't got the time.. Besides, I'm like a dinosaur when it comes to anything related to "computer"; I'm reeeally not computer/digital savvy. So shooting/editing videos makes my head spin every time! @-@

Your thinking is quite impressive while talking about packaging options. However, I think that the buyers lack in information.

  16. Bei stark bis extrem inkrustierten, das heißt verengten Rohrleitungen, kommt die hydro­mecha­nische Rohrreinigung zum Einsatz. Auch hierbei verwenden die Fach­leute von Kuchler Service weder Säuren, Laugen noch um­welt­be­lastende Spül­mittel. Und den­noch er­rei­chen sie zügig das Ziel: eine saubere Leitung – durch eine rund­herum saubere Arbeit, die mehr Effizienz bringt als Kosten nach sich zieht.
