Book #181


This is a 3-section binding technique that Smith calls bobbin because it picks up a thread from underneath like a sewing machine stitch. So I used orange thread on the inside to create those little dots of colour on the spine, picking up on the orange in the cover paper, which is some of my own shibori paper. (If you are ever flipping through Smith's book looking for something quick and simple, don't pick this one.)
