|Japanese Stab Binding
80 books to go toward my goal of 365 in as many days. When I started 80 seemed like a lot of books and it is. Now that I am heading toward the end of this pursuit it still seems like many but not as many as 365 was when I began.
As I plan for Newport and the workshop on how to make Japanese stab bound books I had only planned on creating soft covers in the workshop. Then I though OK why not do a hard cover one. So now I am thinking that is the route to go. I had made hardcover books in this style before but it has been awhile. The hard part of making the hard cover is punching the holes for sewing. So I might simplify the binding and the size of what we do in Newport. This one sure was fun to make.
