"Sweet" Binding Examples

Rounded, coptic, flatback, sweet.....

Sweet binding, flatback binding.




Sorry that the pics are a little bit blurry, but here's a few examples from my classes. These were just quick shots I took at the final to post here on the blog so you can get ideas. Some students used leather, some used linen tapes, and others have used ribbon. It always amazes me how impressive your final work is!

Here's another fun example of something you can print on the interior of a text block. Great example! Amy was this yours? Sorry, I should have posted all these earlier, so I could do my credits more thoroughly! Email me or send me a comment, and I'll add your name to your work. :)

Thanks for posting those, they are great! I'm hoping to make a sweet binding here soon, before I forget how!

I love the book with the skeleton on the cover - it's amazing how something like that can have such an effect. Fantastic. I love it! Thanks for posting that photo... I agree with Rebecca that your students' work is wonderful.
