Deckled Paper Edges Book

Also referred to as feathered edges, deckled edges are rough and irregularly cut edges of a book’s interior paper. In the past, deckled edges were a product of the binding process and could only be trimmed off for a hefty price. Thanks to modern binding technology, it’s now possible to easily create the appearance of smooth edges, which has turned deckle-edged books into a rare sighting. But, if you still want that vintage feel, this can be a great way to add that aesthetic to your project.

Deckled paper can give your book a refined, bespoke look and feel that stands out next to modern books.
