Description: Create this stunning copper book, made richer with a lovely patina, leather and the Italian Longstitch. We will capture and accelerate the beauty of a patina made over time. These copper pieces will serve as our covers as we bind the book using the historic Italian Longstitch. The stitch is beautiful, elegant and a must-have in your binding repertoire. The cover process is truly unique and culminates in a magnificent book that will leave others wondering how you did it.

  • metal ruler
  • cutting mat
  • Xacto knife/blades
  • scissors
  • mechanical pencil
  • awl
  • bonefolder
