Re: [BKARTS] stab binding tips



Hi Jessica--

If you are interested in true Japanese stab binding, the best (perhaps
the only) book is by Kojiro Ikegami: "Japanese Book Binding." It covers
all types of Japanese bookbinding techniques.  For using watercolor
paper, you will need to score or hinge the pages, and if you're doing a
hard cover, hinge both the front and back covers.

Hope this helps--
