Bookbinding Supplies

Bookbinding Supplies, originally uploaded by Jane Stockton.

It was like Christmas today at the Post Office! I got a book on heraldry, a new wrap skirt and some bookbinding supplies.

The colourful threads are 30/3 linen thread for the binding. I was worried they wouldn't be strong enough, so I've ordered the same colours in 18/3 as well. I'm sure I'll find a use for it!

The book is "Bookbinding - Limp Bindings from Talinn". It has some modern repros of various medieval bindings held in Estonia. Can't wait to get started.

The final two spools are some of the limited edition Gilt Sylke Twist. It's alot finer than I expected. But that is OK.
