three piece binding

this a variant of a full leather binding. instead of the book being covered in one piece of leather, the cover is made in seperate pieces: the 2 boards, and the spine. great for using smaller bits of leather, or using contrasting colors. this one has thin leather strips that were onlaid into blind tooled lines. the edges of the book block were also colored so that the design continues across the book from front to back
