and from last night. I started working on The Flying Yorkshireman copy 2 while I was waiting on people to come to dinner... and I kept going on it this morning. You can see all the progress pictures

Signatures printed, folded and punched
P8090108

Sewing frame set up. I'm using only three cords this time but doubling them- I want them to show more on the back!
P8090109

Sewing in progress- sorry for the fuzzy, I just dropped the needle and grabbed the camera. I still think I don't know what I am doing on the ends!
P8090110

Sewing finished
P8090111

Trimming the pages- as best I can without a plough!
P8090113

Tapped up and ready to start backing

P8090119

P8090121

Applying some pretty end papers- these are having a tendancy to roll
P8090122

Back in the press for a few
P8090123

Bookmark and headband
P8090124

Kraft paper over that
P8090125

Making the leather case
P8090126

Since I am using cow leather instead of something thinner, I have to shave the edges to get them thin enough. This is one place where the specialty tool is worth it- it's called a skive and once you have the angle right, it makes the shaving go pretty fast. I still have to be careful not to cut the leather- or me!
P8090127

Making sure the boards fit and trimming the corners
P8090128

Ready to paste!
P8090129

Paste applied
P8090130

Case finished
P8090131

And applied to the book. Now into the press with brass edged boards for several hours
P8090132



Since I can't work any more on it today, I'm going to run an errand and then come home and nap and quilt.
