Book #273

Tegumentum Spadix

I tried another of the bindings from Langwe's book for today. The attachment of each signature is similar to a tacket binding. The original book had a parchment cover, with parchment reinforcement on the spine and inside each signature and the cover was closed with a hook and eye. I have used a sturdy handmade paper rather than parchment, but otherwise I have tried to duplicate the structure - including the hook and eye which I fashioned crudely from a bit of wire.

I especially like the handmade hook and eye!

Thank you, Cathryn. Of course after I got it all done, I found some hooks & eyes in the sewing basket afterwards...
