Day 26 - Finished Book

I finished the magnetic chalkboard book today. I poked the holes in the crease of the signatures using a small awl and picked out a purple embroidery thread to bind the book with. I think that it came out pretty cool and I'm happy with the results. You just might see smaller versions or similar books to this one as well. Right now the book is in the final stages of being done. It's getting pressed. The Coptic stitch is nice on books like these because it allows room for the signatures to open and the book to lay flat. I might if I can find a good price on some leather try some covers similar to this with a leather spine instead of the Coptic stitch. Finishing a book always makes me happy. :)
