Lacing and Tacketing

You’re not likely to find a historical structure decorated as over-the-top as this, but I wanted to try various traditional patterns out.

    Nifty work! I’ve really enjoyed looking around your site, and I particularly like these wonderful over the top laced samples and the binding. Quite wonderful. Thanks for posting on the listserv.

    That’s beautiful, is that leather cord you are using for the tackets? I struggled trying to make a Nag Hammadi style book earlier this year, and admit I gave up on the tackets.

    Your post just goes to show how versatile they are. Well done and thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes
