This binding belongs in a series of creative bookbinding lessons focusing on texture and sewing. Get into the rhythm of making through weaving, stitching, cutting and slotting.

Don't be deceived by the simplicity of these books. They are the gateway to accumulating knowledge of different types of sewing, how they come together, all the while making a solid structure that looks and feels good.
