If you been following this blog, you know the drill on this by now. I cut the book block out of the pre-loved and slightly tatty book I slit the spine down the center and trim/even. I covered the cut edge on the covers iwth some light blue Washi tape, then punched the holes/sewing stations.
The signatures are made up of 35 sheets of Neenah 24 lb Classic Laid paper in light cream. The sheets were folded into seven sigs, then the sewing stations were punched on sigs and covers. The spine edges of the signatures were then wrapped with Washi tape--which also held on the appropriate illustration.
I decided to go back to the single-needle coptic binding on this. I think it's a bit faster and there's no getting a handful of needles mixed up. The binding is stitched with natural linen thread.
