Gothic Tintype photo album. This album features a recessed, original tintype (photo on tin) photo on the front. The photo was taken in the early 1900s. Inside covers are a grunge, black and cream checkered design.
Inside pages are heavy grey card stock for your photos. I've used a heavy, black, waxed linen thread in a Coptic stitch to bind the book.
Because of its age the tintype is not flat and has a very slight bulge which adds to its charm. I have it in a recessed area and it is securely glued in with archival PVA glue. The camera seems to accentuate it as it is barely visible to the naked eye.
A truly unique piece that would make a wonderful present.
