Pink Japanese Stab Stitch book. End pages are gold Yuzen paper as seen above.
Pages are first tied together with a strip of Kozo paper that I hand rolled into a cord. Corners are covered with red bookcloth to keep the stitching from cutting through the delicate papers (shown in 2nd pic). Plain white paper is on the inside.
Then the covers are stitched on with waxed linen thread using the traditional 'Noble Stitch'. Covers are handmade, Spanish Abaca Capellades paper, made at the oldest existing papermill in Capellades, Spain.
SIZE: 5¾" x 4½"
50 pages of white 32# paper
COVERS: Spanish Abaca Capellades paper
ENDPAPERS: Japanese Gold Yuzen paper
