Waratah binding tool & volume with binding tool imprint1920
These bookbinding tools are used by the Library’s bookbinders to create decorative patterns on leather-bound books. This volume was bound in 1920 in half-red morocco, cloth sides, with gold vein marble endpapers. The spine is decorated with waratah, wattle and leaves, hand-tooled by Frank Heyner, foreman-in-charge of the Mitchell Bindery.
