This is one of the first books I made. I was totally taken by the Keith Smith techniques and instruction. I bought one of his books unbound so I could have the experience of binding it myself.
The coptic stitch was my chosen favorite because it lay flat when open so it was easy to write in and paint. The book was Non-Adhesive Binding - another favorite because I didn't have to get all sticky and smudged up with paste
Soon it arrived in my mail box in large sheets as it came from the printers. This was another whole learning experience - I had to cut them apart and collate the sections.
I covered the book board for the covers with some marbled paper I'd made that summer in a workshop in Portland. The sewing is done with waxed linen in a burgundy color to match the covers
And a smaller coptic stitch that I made for a friend who was beginning to learn calligraphy
the sections have been made up with plain paper, lined paper, square grid paper ... white and different colors
It's quite small ... 4-1/2 by 6 inches ... I like this size because it fits in your pocket quite neatly
