The Buttonhole Book has one or more cutouts in the spine to create “windows” that show the stitched text block behind. Decorative papers wrap around each text section to create visual interest. The signatures are attached to the cover with stitches that wrap around each end of the spine to enhance the cover.
The Buttonhole Book offers many possibilities for variety and embellishment. Pam will explain, demo, teach, and guide you. Some bookbinding experience preferred. Register here.
