Hardcover Coptic Stitch Accordion Book

Beth's book project is a hardcover square format Coptic Stitch Accordion book with flap closure and interior paper details. The hard covers are finished with Canson Mi-Teintes paper in an earthy Moss Green colour. Most commonly used for pastel drawing, at 160 gsm (98lb), Mi-Teintes offers just the right amount of stiffness, it folds beautifully, has a nice, lightly textured surface, and the broad range of colours can't be beat. Exposed stitching on the spine of the book and a two layer band combining Arturo Book overlayed with Ginwashi Tissue adds a further natural touch. The band also serves a functional purpose, securing the paper flap closure. For the interior pages, Beth has selected Arturo Book in White, the same paper used on the exterior banding. Arturo Book is a fantastic, textweight paper that is ideally suited to all bookmaking projects, with a lightly textured surface that is perfect for a range of dry media. The interior pages have also been seamed using strips of Chiyogami in a charming bird pattern, to create a semi-accordion style interior.

Please note: No tools or materials are included in the fee. Participants are required to supply their own materials.
