Book #228

German Paper Binding 8

Another variant of the German Paper Binding today. This one has a leather spine, which was attached separately from the boards. It also has hooked endsheets and a hollow spine (no tube!) Attaching the spine and boards separately like this gives the book quite a different appearance, compared to my previous variants. Using leather also gives it a more refined look that I like. Thank you to Peter Verheyen for all the information he has shared about these bindings.
