I'm looking for inspiration here...I've been racking my brain for weeks for a birthday present for my boyfriend without much luck; he dabbles in creative writing but doesn't have the confidence in his work to do more with it, I was thinking I could maybe bind up some of his stuff in a unique book for his birthday. As I would be only doing a single book I'd like to as much as possible by hand myself, I'm thinking I'd like to try to incorporate different stocks/inks on the actual pages and some form of tactile cover. Firstly does anyone have any help about the limits of what I can do with such a small run? Would I be able to consider metallic inks, foil stamping etc for a single book or would the cost be really high? Also binding-wise I dont have access to a workshop just bits and pieces I've aquired over the years so any sort of metalwork is out. I'd really like this to be something worth keeping for years so if anyone has any suggestions as to how to make it special please share!
