Tunnel Book with Retchoso Binding
The structure for the tunnel book is done and now I have to figure out what will go inside. Since the cover is very Asian I most likely will stick to a theme that goes with the it. The binding was somewhat challenging because I was using black bookbinding thread on black paper. Retchoso binding only works with heavier stock paper or multi-page signatures. I learned that by using some paper that tore during the binding process. I fixed it with some PVA. Reinforcing lighter weight paper on the fold is another way of solving the issue of tearing.
