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
