The secret Belgian binding is a method of bookbinding that uses an exposed sewing to bind multiple sections to the cover boards and spine. It creates an interesting thread pattern on the cover and it is a very sturdy binding that allows the book to open completely flat.
You will learn complex stitching styles known as Secret Belgium Binding
By the end of this course you should be able to:
• make decorative sewing a part of your binding expression
• add visual drama to your one-of-a-kind books by incorporating the actual sewing of a book as part of its decoration.
