Criss Cross Binding (aka Secret Belgian Binding)

approx 5.5"w x 7"h x 1" thk.
Page size: 5.5"w x 6.75"h

Created: February 10, 2013

Covers are matboard, covered with a decorative beaded paper and book cloth.

The book block is a  running stitch with kettle stitch binding done in a 2 ply waxed line thread "Natural" and held to the covers with the criss cross binding (aka Secret Belgian Binding developed by Anne Goy from Belgium) done in a 4ply waxed linen thread "Natural/Oatmeal". I added gold eyelets in all the holes.

The signatures are created with LBS End Sheet paper from Columbia Mills. The inside of the covers is done with a matching mulberry paper.

There are 9 signatures of 4 folios (16 pages per signature or total of 144 pages).

I've attached a leather "Perfect Closure" by Zutter.

My logo will be on the inside back cover
