Belgian Bindings: Bird Series

Because I’m obsessed with bookmaking lately, here’s another post. I love the ‘Secret Belgian Binding,’ and here are four that I just made that I’m calling ‘Bird Series’ because, well, why not be obvious.

What’s cool about this binding? The tops of the pages are open pockets, so you can tuck things into them (thus the ‘secret’ part); the spines are unglued and unpierced–they are only tied between the two covers and thus float. Each of these books has 8 unnested signatures for a total of 32 pages, not included the secret spaces.
