Long Stitch and Link Stitch Sketch Book
June 8th, 2009 | Link
This is a sketch book for my friend Grant. 11-3/4″ wide by 9″ high and 1-1/4″ thick; 96 pages of Mohawk Bristol Drawing (eight sections each containing three folios). It’s a tad wider at the spine, so it’s got room to swell if he decides to do collage or tip in a few photos.
This is my second-favorite Japanese paper of all time, only surpassed by the same pattern in a different colorway that I have not been able to find since I bought a sheet of it five or so years ago (sigh). I ordered this version from The Paper Place.
The spine is a standard long stitch and link stitch binding from Keith Smith’s Non-Adhesive Bindings Volume 1. I’m really happy with the tension on this sewing.
