The Thread That Binds

Thread That Binds - cover spread

by Pamela Train Leutz
Oak Knoll Press, 2010

Bound by Eric Alstrom

Dimensions: 9″ x 6″ x 1 1/2″

Description: Exposed sewing braedel binding in full goat with four color leather onlays stamped in blind. Handwoven thread. Blue bugra endpapers.

Artist’s Statement: This binding explores the idea of the “thread that binds” using the exposed sewing as a metaphor. The leather onlays are a continuation of the sewing slips to tie the cover design to the spine. The front and back covers geometrically mirror one another with the title spread across the onlays on the front cover.
