Book #328

Armenian Binding

Today's book is one of the bindings that took a little longer than most. I made this using notes that I got from Shanna Leino and a little information from research papers that I found online. I really like how the double cords are attached to the wooden boards - then the sewing is typical of others bindings with recessed double cords. The Armenian headband and the fore-edge flap are the other distinguishing features. Admittedly, I simplified the headband by doing only a single row whereas the early Armenian bindings were triple! Next time. Next time.

Lovely work, even if the headband is a single. ; ]
