Book #288

Double raised cords with packed cord change-over

This binding does not have a very concise name; the name is more like a short description. Sewing on double raised cords originated a long time ago, certainly as early as the 14th Century, I beleive, maybe earlier? It would have been a covered spine, though. Here I have tried to make it a bit more decorative and used it as an exposed spine binding using leather thongs. I incorporated single packed cords at the head and tail as change-over stations.
