Welcome Back

Today I will share my first attempt at Noble Binding also know as Koki Toji. I made this book on 15/16th May 2008.

Japanese Stab binding; Noble Binding; My First Try

This book is A6 in size and has twelve white plain pages. The thread used was Barbour No 18 cord 3 pre coloured black, it came un-waxed and I waxed it before I sewed up the book. As I mentioned yesterday I am limited to the number of pages I can use until I have a stand for a Dremel drill.

Instructions for this bind, that I followed, can be found in Volume I Non Adhesive Binding; Books without Paste or Glue by Keith Smith. There is a link to Keith’s website in the side panel of this blog labeled ‘Bookbinding Links’

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome back

Today I would like to share my first step into Hemp leaf binding aslso know as Asa-No-Ha-Toji.

Japanese Stab Binding; Hemp Leaf bind My first attempt

I have decorated this one, so here is a picture of the finished book. As before I have used Ranger Adirondack inks for the background of the stamped area, and Versa Fine for the main image. The name of the stamp is Dancing Crane but it reminds me of the Peace Crane.

This book is A6 in size, and has twelve white pages. I will try making thicker books when I have a stand for my Dremel drill. At present I am only using a needle tool to make the holes, so I am piercing the two cover boards, then using a cover board over half the pages and piercing through those. I then repeat this for the remaining pages. Once I have a drill stand, it should be possible to clamp the entire book together and drill through everything in one step.The thread I have used is Barbour No 18 cord 3, which is pre coloured black. I have waxed it myself before sewing.
