Belgian Binding 2 Step Book

This was a book we made at my workshop. We started with paper and bookboard so we made the whole thing. No cut outs ahead. As a result, this class ran 6 hours and we still didnt finish. I had to google to find the directions. The inside is a really neat binding you cant see from here with spider stitches I think she called them. The outside consisted of 3 pieces and you had to move the waxed linen on top and on bottom to catch the inside signatures as well. I enjoyed this binding but the instructor was very unorganized and had no handouts to help us. I dont know if I could make it again. The size is 5 x 8. We covered the front and inside with gorgeous papers from the European paper shop.
