Update May 13: Here’s the tutorial for this book as promised: Alpha Stitch Book Binding Tutorial
Wow, I can’t believe I’m a third of the way through The 50 Book Project. I’ve created a lot of soft cover books with gelli prints lately, so I decided to change things up a bit this week and make a hard cover structure.
This is a 2-section binding with a Alpha stitched spine. I found it in Volume II of Keith Smith’s Non-Adhesive Binding, 1- 2- & 3-Section Sewings.
The book board covers are wrapped in orange Italian book cloth with a subtle cream marbled paper. FYI – I’m on a marbled paper kick at the moment, so you might see quite a bit more of it.
The signatures are made from thick, soft sheets of 90lb Stonehenge paper and they’re sewn with waxed Irish linen thread.
Would you like to learn how to make this binding? Should I create a tutorial for it? Let me know in the comments. And make sure you’re signed up for my weekly newsletter so you don’t miss any of the books.
