Commemorative Book for Prestbury War Memorial

At Deanprint we make beautiful specialist books to last a lifetime. Such as commemorative books to mark  special occasions or for memorials.

We produced this fabulous commemorative book  in our bindery this week for Prestbury War Memorial.  It has 48 leaves, each made from 800 micron greyboard, lined both sides with cream offset. These leaves were then joined with linen to a 12mm board hinge as a four page section.  Cloudy marble endpapers, re-enforced with leather, were attached.  These sections are then section sewn and backlined.  After the gold edging was applied, the bookblock had to be rounded and backed, which due to its solidity had to be secured in a vice and shaped with a hammer.  Once the required shape was achieved the block was secured with glue, the head and tail bands were attached and the book was cased-in.  The case was made from 3500 micron greyboard covered in black leather, was hand-tooled and gold foil blocked.
