F&K guest book

  • — Embossed initials on cover
  • — Deckled edged paper
  • — 17 x 24 cms

This elegant guest book was made for Fiona and Karl’s wedding. It is bound using a Secret Belgian stitch. Fiona’s sister ordered the wedding guest book and was looking for something classic and stylish that would fit the tone of the day.

Using the wedding invitation as inspiration, we discussed reusing the F&K motif which was part of their design. I originally was going to have just their initials embossed on the cover. When experimenting with embossed variations, I realised that raising them up on a plain square backing gave the design the ornate touch it needed.

The wedding colour scheme was a mixture of navy blue and slate blue. I dyed white linen thread in order to perfectly match the slate blue colour. It looks great against the dark bookcloth. Inside I used a mixture of heavy-weight cream paper, blue silk paper and navy paper which I hand tore, creating feathery edges to each page.
