Another experiment here. I cut 3 strips of soft red suede, and wove them through slits cut in plain leather cover. I then long stitched the signatures into the covers, as per Keith Smiths "Long Stitch through Slotted Wrapper Cover" (Vol I, pg 141). Not entirely successful sewing, I need more sizes of threads. The thread I used was too thin, I think, as I couldn't line it up very well on the spine. No matter, it feels great now it's finished.
