B is for… Belgian

A lovely binding choice is the secret Belgian binding. I really love the simple lines and clean look. It’s not too difficult for those who have some experience with bookbinding and the results are beautiful. They make nice journals and albums. because it opens flat it can be a good option for left-handed people like me.

lovely sample from Art-is-try. You can really see why it is called secret. The choice of thread is perfect to hide the binding.
