The book for today was the third book that we prepared for the Bookbinding I Class. It is a modified spine book. The signatures were sewn together with kettle and herringbone stitches. The spine was then lined with crash/mull. The endsheets were then tipped in. The text block was then rounded and headbands were glued in. A piece of bookcloth acts as the spine.
The front and back boards are covered in the bookcloth that matches the spine. The endsheets and the hinge are then glued into place.
The text block of this book was made from hand torn sheets. This book is the perfect size for 4" by 6" photos or for an autograph book.
