Here are another two new books I have finished up in the studio. One is a coptic binding, the other is a long and link stitch binding. On the long and link stitch book I again used finish leather for the spine. I also used a sheep bone button for a closure. I picked up the sheep bone button up in Iceland as well.
With some time before my next book show, I am trying to work on some new things. One is learning how to bind a book using coptic stitch. I really like making this style of binding because of the exposed spine. With the spine exposed I feel it allows for the book to open and lay flat. Which is perfect for people who need guest books. Below are images of two books I have just finished using the coptic stitch binding.
