1670 – Book pressing

I sketched this standing up while waiting for the rice to cook. This is the makeshift press I use to glue the cover to the font and back board of my homemade sketchbooks. To glue it to the actual signatures I use two clamps and some old pieces of shelf. I struggled with the perspective in this a little – the grey pestle and mortar is ok but the marble one is not quite right…I didn’t get the lovely colour of the marble right either.
