Bow-Tie Binding, Workshop Results

This workshop was the second of two, the first being the creation of embossed copper covers. This workshop, taught by Dolores Guffey, led members through the complicated bow-tie binding. The binding holds the signatures together and she designed a way of attaching the copper covers without needing to drill holes. The following pictures will give you some idea of the process.
