Japanese  Bookbinding



Six Needle Japanese Binding

This simple Japanese book design is one of the bindings I have been teaching in the introduction to bookbinding class at Hampshire College.  Work with exquisite Japanese papers and cloth to make a hand bound journal and folding box.  This binding is ideal for poets/writers and artists who want to bring their work into book form.
