Book #287

Limp Vellum Binding

There are lots of bindings that could be described as limp vellum bindings, but this particular type of binding seems to have the distinction of owning the official "limp vellum binding" title. This style has its textblock sewn onto sewing supports (of parchment or other leather), including endbands, and then the supports are laced into a vellum wrapper. (Although I have to admit that my model shown here, has a cover of heavy handmade paper, rather than vellum.)
