Binding the book

 

DSCN0906

Coming to the end of a big project. What a great feeling! I don’t even want to count how many years. Now for the final chapter: Binding the book. There is cloth glued on every two pages. Then these pages are assembled and now I’m sewing through the cloths in the back. Very carefully, with a long tapestry needle and special unbreakable thread. I’m not half way through and my hand is sore, despite using pliers. Once the sewing is finished, I’ll add the hardcover front and back, then cover the sewing with cloth or wood.
