Rick Jacques is a graphic design student in Atlanta, and from the look of his work he has a fine future ahead of him. But personally, I think he could retire on these gorgeous wooden books if he never wanted to do another thing. As he describes his version of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,
Copper spine was etched with acid to reveal the letters, lettering on front was wood burned, inside is a stripped paper back version of the book wrapped in leather paper then glued on to the spine, and the back has a heat transfer of the summary of the book.
He has plans for Moby Dick, Treasure Island and Last of the Mohicans, and I’m going to be checking his blog in hopes of getting a look at them.
