COLOPHONS IN HANDMADE BOOKS

COLOPHONS WRITTEN AT THE BACK OF A HANDMADE BOOK ARE USED FOR EXPLANATION OF THE KINDS OF MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THE BOOK.  In published books Colophons list the typeface.  In handmade books the Colophon lists the type of papers used to make the book, the bookbinding technique, pen types, paint mediums & even extra embellishments that may have been included in the book.  The Colophon page shown here is from my “The Moon Viewing Party” handmade book, which I created after taking a writing and illustration workshop at The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library.  The print of the Mt. Fuji painting shows Mt. Fuji during the autumn when the moon is fullest.
