case binding

rounded spine binding

I have been busy at work on this undertaking, learning to bind books with rounded spines. Intimidating at first, but such fun! My thanks to North Bennet Street School, the fairytale workshop where fine craftsmanship it taught.

This lot are bound in hand dyed, homemade linen book cloth with embroidered french knots. The striped headbands are hand stitched, which may be time consuming, but is exceedingly gratifying. These 5x7" pocket sketchbooks feel just right in the hand.
