Hand Sewing the Book Block

Want to know why our handcrafted books can last a lifetime and beyond?
Before the cover is crafted, there is a lot of work that goes into preparing the book block to get it strong and ready for the binding.  This short clip shows one part of the preparation of the book block before a new leather cover is made.  As you will see the sections are hand sewn to form the basis for a strong, durable binding.  
Hope this gives you some insight into the process.  Enjoy!
