Sumptous Suede Journal — Stampaway 2013


I taught this lovely cross structure journal at Stampaway on the first workshop day, Wednesday, August 7,

There is debate whether the Italian Cross Structure binding is a historical model or a contemporary creation inspired by study of a historical long stitch model. The Italian bookbinder, Carmencho Arregui, is credited with either its creation or re-discovery. You can explore the website, www. outof and see the work of this bookbinder and pictures of his 1992 Cross Structure binding. Arregui has developed four or five more complex Cross Structure bindings, as well. The structure we created in this workshop is a simple model.
