Book #18

16th Century Ledger Binding

This is another example of an historic ledger binding. In this case I was replicating the construction but not the materials. This ledger binding is based on a 16th century European example where the textblock is sewn onto supports which are woven into the cover. The tacketed overbands cover the woven sewing supports.
