Toben Lewis's binding of an edition of 'Whisky Galore' by Compton Mackenzie.
Toben Lewis (United Kingdom) is the winner of Best Creative Binding Prize, Overall Category. Lewis created a binding for a copy of 'Whisky Galore' by Compton Mackenzie.
Notes from the entrant:
'The book is bound between boards made from staves of a whisky barrel. The spine wrapper is created from a 19th century parchment land deed, toned to reference the sea that plays an important role in the story and the 'water of life' ('uisge beatha' in Scottish Gaelic) contained within the whisky bottles. Page edges are toned to tie in thematically, as was the choice of coloured linen thread.'
