Book #90

Islamic Binding 3

I have another Islamic binding to present today. It is similar in construction to the book I showed yesterday, but there are some differences thus changing its categorization. Most notably, this example features leather tabs at the head and tail and no fore-edge flap. I am unsure if there is a special name for this kind of Islamic book (if you know, please tell me).

I'd love to know about how you make the headbands for the book

It's a tricky one, but like most endbands, practice makes perfect! I haven't seen any detailed instructions online. A quick googling led me to this page:

But the best resource for endbands is usually "Headbands: How to Work them" by Greenfield - http://www.amazon.com/Headbands-Work-Them-Jane-Greenfield/dp/0938768514
