Book #190

Packed Tacket Binding

I first saw this binding on Dennis Yuen's website several years ago and he called it a tacket binding. The tackets are not made the same as other tackets that I was familiar with so I looked around for some more information about it. According to a small footnote in one of Keith Smith's books, Smith learned this technique from Betsy Palmer Eldridge and claimed it is "perhaps 16th Century German" in origin.
