Woven Chain Guest Book
August 5th, 2009 | Link
I’m unabashedly pleased with myself on this guest book, which is a wedding gift for Jane and Patrick.
There are three sections of Rives BFK cover-weight paper totalling 24 sheets. The sections are attached to the spine using the Woven Chain sewing from the second volume of Keith Smith’s non-adhesive binding series, 1- 2- & 3-Section Sewings, and 12/3 waxed linen thread. There’s 1/4″ between the first and second sewing stations at the top, and 3/4″ between the remaining sewing stations. There are a couple of reasons why I like this sewing (in spite of the agony of punching all those holes): it’s attractive on the outside, and it has good structural integrity because thread runs all the way down inside each sections.
