Single Sheet Sewing - Hard Cover on Cords with Cindy Hollander. Unlike traditional post or Japanese stab bindings, this type of binding allows you to sew single, unfolded sheets of paper, board, plexiglass, or other material into a book form which opens perfectly flat. The binding utilizes waxed thread, twisted together to form a 3 ply cord, with the ends being untwisted and sewn into the hard cover to complete. The text block will be sewn using a sewing frame.
Halsman's contact sheets from his Dali shoot. From a BBC review of Magnum: Contact Sheets. [At first i thought this was taken as an early example odd photomontage but was surprised to see the contact sheets showing the cats were thrown into the frame - several times! This also shows how the photographer planned and designed the shot.]
