Bookbinding by Peeter Kippik

<I>Leather bookbinding (content: Ado Reinvald, Poems, 1904)</I>

Luxurious bookbinding in the Art Nouveau style made for the collection of poems (Tartu; 1904) of the Estonian poet Ado Reinvald. The author of the the dark-green morocco binding is an Estonian bookbinding master Peeter Kippik (1880-1925) who worked in Tartu and later owned a bindery in St. Petersburg, Russia. The decoration is in the technique of intarsia and old tooling. The edges are gilt, ornamented and coloured with the enamel, the doublure and the fly leaf are made of moiré silk. The two bookbindings by Peeter Kippik held in the National Library of Estonia are the only known works by this master in Estonia.
