A Fraction of the Whole  by Steve Holtz
Bound by Mark Cockram

Multi-sectional binding. Sewn with a link stitch, secondary sewing to linen with full
linen board attachment. Full leather binding, hand dyed by the binder, multiple inlays, mixed media. Hand sewn end bands, full edge decoration with reverse transfer printing and acrylic. Leather jointed end papers to edge-to-edge paper doublures.

The binding explores the fractured and often violent, tortured lives of two brothers and those lives that they touch.
