Tea-Stained, Coptic bound Notebooks

These notebooks are made from A2 sheets of paper torn to A5, dipped in a strong brew of tea, hung to dry and then folded into folios. The cover boards are punched, covered with fabrics, then the endpapers are punched and glued in place before the eyelets are inserted. Then the binding holes are put in position on the folios to line up with the cover holes. The covers and folios are joined with cotton twine in a coptic binding style. Coptic binding allows a lot of movement to open the covers and turn the pages.
Available for sale in Boobook in Huskisson.
