Tire Track Binding

Here’s a quick look at book number 26 in my 50 Book Project. It’s a small leather bound journal with a tire tracks binding.

I found this binding in Keith Smith’s 1,2 & 3 Section Sewings (page 220-21) but modified it to hold 4 signatures and 4 lines of stitching instead of the original 2.

I used a rustic calf leather for the cover and sewed it with a 4-ply waxed linen thread, both from Hollanders.

I’ve learned so much during the first half of this 50 Book project, I can’t wait to learn more on the second half of this journey.
