This style of book is made with a sewing frame but it can also be done with simple tools and anyone can make one from home.
I do classes on how to make these lovely cordbound books. In the class we learn traditional and modern methods of cord binding.
I made this cordbound book last week. I actually made two and one book was used for a sign-in book and the other for a photo album:
|Cordbound Sign-in book for my sister's wedding. Traditional cord bindings have straight cords on the spine which I teach in the class but this variation is easily done.|
|The top view of the book which has the Even Star from Lord of the Rings embossed on it.|
