bindery beauty




After being chosen to create this unique couple's wedding stationery suite, we were commissioned to do a custom guestbook. There are so many amazing details going into this wedding event. The bride and groom are writing personal letters to each guest in the form of escort cards and are asking for personal letters to be written to them in the form of a guestbook. The book was designed to house these letters from the guests with letterpressed signatures using the flora silhouettes from the wedding stationery design and colorful envelopes were bound into the signatures using a coptic stitch. The interior is custom pressed with a continuation of the designs from the invitations and a green bookcloth finishes the cover with a silk string and button closure.
