This limp binding is based on a 16th century registry of a town’s lumber consumption.
The decorated cover wrap is a folded construction of handmade papers with leather cord closures. The sections are sewn to the cover at two stations, using a unique sewing pattern that is finished off with a final gathering. The sewing is somewhat free-form.
This is a great introductory course for beginners.
