This book was submitted to the book swap by Rhonda of MyHandboundBooks in Canada, eh. This book has a cover of soft deerskin that is lined on the inside with handmade paper.
This book is made using a Crossed Structure Binding technique, called the CSB Basic. The cover leather starts as a single piece of leather, but it is cut apart to create strips for sewing. The signatures are sewn onto the strips that are part of the back cover. After sewing, the front cover is attached by crossing all the strips on the spine and weaving the back cover strips into the front cover, and the front cover strips in the back cover.
