Book #175

Historical Model of a wooden board binding

This model was made to learn a few historical techniques: sewing on split alum tawed thongs, drawn on wooden boards with beveled spine edge, vellum spine lining and leather spine covering, etc. Modeled after sixteenth century bindings. Since this was a model, I covered only half the spine with leather so that I could still see the sewing on one end.
