Keith Smith's got one.

A description from his website <http://www.netacc.net/~ksbooks/mybooks.htm>:

>Smith's Sewing Single Sheets is his fourth book on non-adhesive
>binding. These sewings can be used to bind single sheets of paper,
>board, plexiglass or even metal. The bindings open flat to any page,
>unlike traditional post-bindings and stab bindings commonly used to
>bind single sheets.
>
>This attribute makes handsome and functional albums for photographs.
>Smith devised these sewings to make one-of-a-kind artists books from
>large inkjet prints.
>
>Several Coptic sewings are described, two raised cord sewings are
>diagrammed as well as an example of sewing onto tapes. In each, the
>book block can be single sheets, or a combination of sections and
>sheets.
>
>Pasting and gluing for covering the separate side-covers are described.
>
>There are 111 drawn diagrams plus 179 photographs of books by
>contemporary book artists and binders.

>Hi all,

>I am wondering if anybody out there knows of a source for a variety of ideas
>for cutting, folding, and making books from single sheets of paper. I am
>familiar with the "basics", but was wondering if there are any good books,
>manuals, web sites, etc. that give instructions for different structures.
>Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
>
>Thank you,
>Nicole
