Coptic Bindings

These books and other posts marked with * were made during my apprenticeship at Still Water Bindery in Vermont with Patricia Johnson, 2008
Click on the images to do them justice.

This is a binding I tried with beads on the spine. It was a little tricky to make, but it worked out fine. It doesn't hinder the opening of the book, which opens absolutely flat like all Coptics.

The paste paper used for the cover of this book was part accident, part -intention.
And the olive green and maroon look great together.

Found a shopping bag that I couldn't bear to throw away.
And so the Everywhere-I-Go book was born!
