Beautiful! This binding method is really intriguing, and you've done it so perfectly and clean; and I love the bright colours and paper you used.

Thank you. This was one of those books that the heavily waxed thread looks good on.

Where do you find the material to make the books?

The text paper was a swap meet find at Fanime 2010. The thread was a gift (if I recall correctly). The bookcloth is from Paper Source (Flax in San Francisco has a good selection of cloth as well). The paper is from a shop in Japantown.
