This book is another model based on the books examined by Langwe in Limp Bindings from the Vatican Library. The original was a religious treatise from the 1500s. The stitching technique is quite tricky and I did not really master it. There is a bead, or chain, formed at the top and bottom of each row of stitching - and mine are not very consistent. The original book had 23 sections and I used only ten - it occurs to me that the chain would get easier to form and look more consistent as more sections are added.
