SECRET BELGIAN BOOK BINDING INSTRUCTIONS
“These instructions show you how to bind a book with an interesting pattern of weaving which laces the front and back covers to the spine. Included is the sewing of the text block (a set of four signatures) which is attached to the inside spine of the cover.
The secret is in the weave of the cover and in attaching the text block. It is not difficult to do but requires patience in getting the threads taut so that the book does not wobble.
Hedi Kyle rediscovered this binding attributed to the Belgians and she solved the mystery of how to make it.”
