Exquisite Woven Bookbindings by Natalie Stopka

“I spend my days pulling prints and binding books with favor for unconventional structure, textiles, and tactility. Books are made with uncommon fibers, repurposed and hand dyed fabrics, and vintage textiles.”

simply beautiful.

did book binding workshop ! 

tried out the japanese bind and circle accordian bind. 

the japanese bind is surely easier, as pages are individual; whereas the accordian one requires some accurate measurements to match up the pages and covers nicely. 

another type of book binding. this looks more complicated than the traditional coptic bind. but i like how the stitch goes onto the cover/back of the book, can be used as design of front/back cover
