The Cross Structure Binding (CSB) is a book structure in which the cover is attached to the text block as it is sewn.

The design of the Leather CSB is very suitable for stiffer materials such as leather.

The sewing is exposed, so it’s a great opportunity to show off a little.

Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding with CBBAG under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza, and Rose Newlove. With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures. Please visit Stuart’s website: www.georgehillco.com
