The Bone Folder

The Bone Folder is a recorded conversation between a bibliophile and master book binder from 1920"s Germany. My book binding instructor translated the text from it's original German, and gave me a copy for binding. I chose to covering it in a paper case because the text block was small, and this binding style is briefly discussed in the text.
The text block was sewn with two pieces of card for end sheets. The paste paper is folded around the card for support. This is an adhesive free binding, so the paper could be easily removed and the text block rebound if desired. If the cover was folded out, this is how the book would look.
