Coptic sewing structure with waxed blue linen
thread and Canson Mi-Tientes endpapers. Each cover is 3

"I bound an edition of 300 copies of this book in 1989
(1/4 leather with paper sides). Each book was accompanied by
a set of eleven tokens (coins). This unique binding is an
experiment for me, quite a departure from my usual
traditional designs and materials."
