New: Black Spot Books

Alter is very excited to be carrying the work of Margaux Kent and her line, Black Spot Books.
This expert bookmaker from Pennsylvania has creatively found an outlet for using all the scraps she collects from her normal size bookmaking. Using vintage and found leathers Margaux exquisitely hand binds, stitches and builds these usable and wearable books.
Each one is one-of-a-kind and truly a piece of art. An amazing gift for anyone who loves reading, writing or just enjoys beautifully crafted objects.

Sizing of the book charms:
1 inch high
3/4 inch wide
3/8 inch spine
38 sheets (76 pages)
on copper loop with 22 inch copper chain
