/Portfolio: Synthcord Books

Written by Marenne on September 16th, 2015  | Posted under /Bound on Cords.

Last Bookbinders Fair (Leiden, 2014) I bought 8 sheets of papers with a feel and look of parchment but made with a natural fiber. I used these 8 sheets to create 31 books using the Long Stitch Bound on Cords method. The cords disappear into the covers. To offset the natural look of the paper I used synthetic rope matching the papers colors. In each of every four books I could make out of a paper the pattern of the cords is different. So, all 31 books are different. One book of the last series is missing because I used that one as a test-item.
