A Millimeter Apart - The Rubow Variation


The Rubow binding is a variation of a millimeter binding -- a small amount of leather is used but instead of running vertically up the spine it lays across the head and tail of the book. Below is an example of a Rubow binding, my own paste paper and a graphite decorated edge. The black leather blends with the paper but look carefully and you'll see the millimeter of black leather shining over the edges. Wicked classy.
