British author Kenneth Grahame’s enduring classic, The Wind in the Willows is a well-loved novel for all ages. It follows the trials, tribulations and most importantly the friendships between animals who reside in the idyllic English countryside. This is a ninth edition Methuen publication in 1915, it has a frontispiece black and white illustration by Graham Robertson.
Binding suggestions: As this is a story set on the banks of a river, a blue leather binding would be a nice look for this book. The black and white illustrations are bold and could work well with pale yellow endpaper to contrast the leather. The detailed illustration on the spine can be debossed in gold, and the edges of the book coloured blue with speckles of gold.
