Books I’ve Bound

I uploaded a picture of two books I’ve bound to Pinterest and Facebook last week. I meant to mention that here sooner. Maybe it’s just as well I didn’t; a conversation recently started on Pinterest is taking an interesting turn. I had no reason to direct you to it earlier, but it might be worth a peek. {SMILE}

In any case, these are the two books I’ve bound that I’ve kept and recently found. Most either stayed with the library that owned the, or went to friends and relatives as gifts, but not these two. {Smile}

The one on the left is bound in Occidental signature style. It's the very first book I bound, so it has a couple of errors I don't make anymore. Fortunately, they don't show much in this picture. {GRIN}

The one on the right is bound in my best guess at Oriental side-sewn style. I wish I could find instructions. I'm sure they'd save me some trial-and-error learning. {chuckle, lop-sided Smile}

  1. Wow. Those are beautiful, beautiful books. :)

    1. Thank you. {Smile}

      I'm afraid I'm going to have to rebind the Oriental one with the red string. It's showing wear that makes me think it's going to wear out if I don't give it sturdier covers. I need to figure out how to do that. I take it you want to see how it turns out? {SMILE}
