Silver gilding

The edges of this book were gilded for us by New Hampshire Bindery. From their website: “Gilding – A process where each edge of a book is sanded and polished; then a thin film of gold or silver foil is transferred onto them with a heated silicon rubber roll. Gilding protects pages from the natural oils of the human hand.”
