Japanese stab binding - Hemp leaf stitch
This Japanese binding is my favourite so far, though it did lead to sore fingers the next day. I used a red buckram bookcloth which I haven't tried before, and although it seemed heavier and shinier than the more paper-like cloths I usually go for, once it was on the book I loved it, and it seemed a tiny bit more protective. So far this is the most perfect book I have managed to make - until I spill something on it!
I think the stab binding techniques are the ones I will use most in my books as I often work with loose leaves of paper, I also like the visual effect they create of wrapping around the book, explicitly showing how the pages are held. I will aim to try out some more of these and perhaps experiment with different papers to get a feel of which bindings are suited to each.
