Cutaway Spine - POC


For something to do on a sunny afternoon, I made this cutaway spine proof of concept. The pages were folded in half, scored 1/2" in from the spine edge, then the one piece cover was scored and folded to reflect the thickness of the book block. Two reveals were cut out to expose the pages then using the inside corners of the reveals for markers, four holes were stabbed in each signature for sewing the block together with blue thread. The cover was attached with double-stick along each strap front and back burnished into place.
