A modern bookish twist on the Elizabethan ruff.

The fish skin used for this is lake trout which I caught in Highland Lake, Ontario.  It has been hand tanned using oak gallnuts and then dyed naturally using sumac and quebracho.  The paper used is Strathmore drawing paper 80 lb / 118 gsm and Himalayan Lotka paper with dried flower inclusions.  All pages were dyed in the same dye bath as the fish skins.

The pages are sewn into the fish leather with Irish linen thread, using an adaptation of the long stitch binding method.

Magnetic closure holds the ends together securely.
