I was going to post up the results of the etchings I printed recently, but decided to put that off until later as I had made some improvements to my sewing techniques following the last attempt at sewing over cords.
I did much better this time, getting a tighter, more consistent loop around each cord. I used some black nylon woven cord this time, partly to make the binding more visible, but also to allow for the attaching of some weightier boards for the covers…
I was using up some paper stock leftovers and had enough mixed sheets to make two books at 90 x 102mm. The second book uses very hairy hemp twine, doubled over.
Again, I intend to make some fairly hefty covers for this one, and hope to be able to fray the ends of the twine to good effect.
I’ll post more on the covers another time, and I promise to show the etchings soon!
