Book #183

Packed Raised Cords

With today's binding, I have officially reached the half-way point in my "365 bindings" adventure! As I showed yesterday, I made a French Door book with two different bindings. The French Door structure can be made with any binding really. So today I present another raised cord binding, but this time it is done with a packed sewing. (I should point out that neither of these techniques, packed and unpacked on raised cords, are used for exposed spine bindings normally; however, this book is quite small so the bindings and cover attachments are probably adequate to support the book blocks.)
