I am still having fun experimenting with the Medieval-style "limp" bindings, and this time I thought that it would be fun to bind a book with more unconventional and modern materials.
As you can see I decided on a black felted wool cover - it's really a pity you can't touch it because it feels REALLY nice! I stitched the folio sections into the felted cover with quite a chunky black linen thread and used some reddish pink viscose ribbon flecked with black for the direct tacketing.
I don't often use non-natural materials, but this ribbon/tape from Stef Francis really is gorgeous and it comes in such a wide range of really beautiful subtle shades - you will find them hard to resist! I knotted the tackets and left the ends quite long as a design feature.
Lastly, as a closure for this lovely tactile woollen book, I used a nice glass toggle-type button with silver metallic flecks through it and silver wire banding around it, which I think suits rather well. It's such a cuddly kind of a book, reminds me of an old and much loved duffle coat :-)
