"A series covers of classic books. The books were leather bound and the design was then foil stamped in two foil colors onto the full jacket and spine. This is probably my favorite project of all time and thanks to Jo the interiors are as beautiful as the covers. Each has marbled endpapers, painted page edges and matching ribbons and headbands."

Problem solved!!

I’d completely forgotten about this product until I saw a vintage print ad posted to Facebook.

Don’t forget, it’s a “space age design with fingertip control”!
