Book #284

Tegumentum Violaceum

This is another limp binding model based on the books examined in Limp Bindings from Tallin. The original was a church's record of accounts in the late 15th Century. Certainly one of the trickier books I have made recently. The textblock is sewn on double raised cords and then attached to the cover with tackets and there is a small wooden support in between the layers of leather.
