Woven Chain Photo Album
April 28th, 2014 | Link
This is a binding that long-time readers may recognize, since I’ve used it a few times (starting with Jane’s & Patrick’s wedding guest book). It’s the Woven Chain binding from Keith Smith’s 1- 2- & 3-Section Sewings book, done as a photo album.
I always love the effect of this binding, especially done up with a luxe book cloth (in this case a slubby silk-like book cloth from Asahi) and beautiful Japanese paper.
I always make these photo albums quite large (usually folded down from a full-sized sheet of Rives BFK, so around 11-5/8″ wide by 7-3/4″ high) but I think they would also be lovely in a smaller size to fit 4″ x6″ photos.
