Bradel BindinG, Leather spine, with tooling

This is a Bradel Binding, it's a solid and in many cases rather attractive style of binding that originated in Germany. The image is of a flock of starlings that congregate in Bodmin every year, the hum they made as they flew over head was incredible. It is an image I keep meaning to do more with, more information on Bradel Bindings can be found here
