Book Binding Trade. The processes of binding a book by hand are much the same as they were 500 years ago. Bookbinding began when the codex started to replace the roll. The earliest elaborately decorated book bindings were those produced for use on church altars. Those that survive are often magnificent examples of the jeweller's, goldsmith's, ivory carver's, or embroiderer's arts.

Button Coptic by Lori Vliegen. I've managed to add buttons to some of my other books, and since I've discovered the coptic binding, i decided to merge the two...and here's the result. I'm really happy with the combination of the tweed looking bookcloth and the vintage buttons.
