Book #182

Raised Cords

Happy Canada Day!
Today is a big day for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it is July 1st and that means it is Canada's birthday, whoop! In honour of the occasion, I made a book featuring our flag for today's post. Secondly, today and tomorrow mark the half-way point in my "365 bindings" adventure. Half of 365 is technically 182.5 but that is not really a Day 182 and Day 183 share the half-way celebration. My Canada Day book, therefore, also serves another purpose because it features two different bindings. It is a French Door structure, and as such, there are two book blocks sewn on opposite sides of a shared back cover. Today's binding is a standard raised cord sewing, as shown in the closeup photo above. Tomorrow I'll show you the other side!
