The binding is Ethiopian double needle coptic stitch and scrap leather for the covers. The book block is made from old computer punch cards I got from the work Christmas party last December. I cut the back pieces out of different leather and the watch parts are from my stash.
good idea !

Powerful! Thanks!
Very cool. This would look good with some old dot matrix print outs (old green/white striped paper) or if you could find some old typed pages for 80 years ago.
Or if you bound the Bible:

The Steam Punk Bible that is. I do admire the progression, book inspiring, movement, inspiring decorated book. I think feistydonut has hit upon a well suited theme in the genre.

A few techniques I'd like to see employed would be:
Embossed, traced or branded mechanical patterns onto the leather.
Inset cutouts with a lower layer of patterns hinting at mysterious complexity.

I'm really seeing a plethora of possibilities with this. And I'm not a big fan of Steam Punk normally either. Though I did read the book, but that was before there was such a thing as Steam Punk. I prefer Gibson's sprawl mythos personally.
