French Link Binding

Traditionally used to “case in” books, you’d often not see this binding from the spine after completing the book. We will experiment with leaving this binding exposed and experimenting with attaching covers in different ways. This binding is another beautiful way to make books, as well as a way to experiment with structure. We will focus on learning the stitch, and discuss options for finishing in different ways.
