Terre des Hommes

The binding for Terre des Hommes (Saint-Exupéry) by Morina Mongin is a example of how the process of hot foil stamping can be used to personalize leathers. Patterns and designs are etched into metallic plates, which are then heated up and pressed into the leather, with coloured foils in between or not (« blind »).

For La Logique sans peine (Lewis Carroll, illustrations by Max Ernst), the pattern has been enhanced by raised fluorescent lines which adds dynamism and legibility to the design.
