Completed case with board spine alowing for the thickness of the pages to be used in the final project.
A speciality of this class is the next step where heavy lead or wood type is chosen to create a title or feature for the journal. John sets up the Hunters proof press for the students and guides them through first a sample print and then a firm blind emboss onto the outside of their Journal cases.
