This is an Islamic binding that I made. I believe that it is called chahargoshe, with a soft cover. The covers and spine piece are constructed separately and this style is typically characterized by the four narrow leather edges surrounding a more decorative material on the cover. Hand-sewn Islamic endbands too, of course.
It is certainly possible that I have the name wrong. If someone more knowledgeable knows a more accurate name for this type of binding, please leave me a comment.
