Here's a truly wonderful find for all us bookbinding folk out there! We stumbled upon this book on Tumblr - Uniquely bound in a half native-patterned fabric, The Song of Hiawatha from 1907. Longfellow, Henry Wadworth - Published and printed by Rand, McNally & Co., Chicago, 1907
That lovely native-pattern fabric, half bound with an orange fabric cloth and finished with two gold foils. 108 years old and still going strong. Great quality bookbinding at its best.
