Book #026

This book's pages are sewn as shown in the left picture, and then a cover is glued on. The pages are 8.5 x 11 inch paper cut in half crosswise and then folded, so the book measures 4.25 x 5.5 inches. The cover is one piece of sheet music just big enough to wrap around the book. It's glued (with good old Elmer's) over the stitching on both sides and along the edge of the spine as well. You can see that the stitching shows through pretty distinctly. I think this is because the cover paper was a little thin for the job, and also because it wasn't completely dry when I scanned it; it may smooth out by tomorrow. Not that stitches showing is necessarily a bad thing...binding is beautiful, I think.

I really like seeing the stitches under the sheet music.
