In this illustrated handbook expert bookbinder Karli Frigge explains two methods of binding in leather based on sewing the gatherings onto leather thongs, which are in turn drawn through boards. With 75 drawings; "intended for advanced bookbinders." Some of the processes illustrated (making a headcap, backing a spine, making a hollow, sewing, gluing) are more widely applicable in binding.
