Well, Molly Brooks must be just about the craftiest lady of them all. At least in today’s round-up of fantastic things seen on the internet. So today we present you with the exposed tape bind – courtesy of Molly Brooks!
What you will find here is a fantastic variation on the classic coptic stitch, and providing an array of opportunity for customising and detailing tape designs in relation to the rest of your book. A rather special touch, which Molly mentions some might find off-putting (we don’t!) is an adaptation to the stitching which allows a bit of space on the tape between the covers and the book block, allowing the cover to open out a little wider than usual.
