I no longer remember what my plan was for the boards I scavenged; those slits puzzle the hell out of me.

Figuring these would work best with a textblock sewn on cords, and seeing as how I don’t do that often, I worked on the other book first.

This was formerly the bottom right leg of my favorite linen loose pants.

The thread ran short sewing in the penultimate signature.

After pasting in the endsheets, I pressed the book for a long afternoon with a fan on to help drying.

And I’ll get right on that next book, the one sewn on cords. Right on it.
