Headbands – Endbands
Traditionally sewn around two rolled paper cores with three or more silk threads and a front bead.
Basic two color endbands with a front bead:
One is sewn on a triangular leather/vellum laminated core, the other on a round leather core.
Conservation-style headband. Sewn with one thread (this one is linen) over a stiffened hemp core.
Coptic headband. Sewn with dyed linen thread. Weave is continuous from board across textblock and back to other board. The sewn edge of the book is my addition/innovation. The two plexiglass boards are held together with a blanket stitch.
