A buttonhole stitched book with blank manga paper on the interior. The spine is covered in red bookcloth with red and black chiyagami. The thread is yellow waxed linen.
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.
All of your work is excellent! I especially like how clean and polished this book looks with some really awesome stitching.
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.
Wow, that's beautiful.
