Vestiges, Red

Cover. This book is part of a set-one is related by cover, the other is more similar and yet to be posted.

binding is Sewing w/ weaving variation and covers incorporated

I made my very first book after the AP Art History exam. In lieu of continuing to teach her students art history, my teacher made art with us. So there is no name for the book-making stitch she taught us because she believed in art for the masses. No fancy thread or paper or anything was really needed to sew the books, just a minor idea of I called it the Sewing stitch. Fast forward and I now can no longer do this stitch without improvising in ways too complicated to explain with words...
