I know, I know - it’s been forever but school is keeping me way too busy to even think about computers and blogs. But I promise I have a bunch of photos to share. I am going to try and keep the next few posts from being too technical. Here is a photo album I completed a few months ago. The structure is called a split board binding, or a variation on a library style binding. It is not a very refined structure but it is built like a tank. It has a much stronger board attachment than the case binding structures we have been doing up until now. The sections are stubbed, as you can see in the photo, so that when pictures are added it does not bulge at the foredge and stress the spine.
This book is for sale. It is currently in the school’s gallery, but if anyone is interested let me know. Sold
