Hardcover Pamphlet

The hardcover pamphlet is one of my favorite binding styles. I have always been drawn to books with an exposed spine. I love seeing the sewing along the spine and having the glimpse of pastedown paper. In this book, I chose a contrasting ingres paper for the pastedowns which draws the eye toward the spine and accentuates the sewing. Depending on the project, I sometimes choose to have the tie off on the inside of the book and other times on the outside spine. In this case, the tie off is in the center of the book. I have made hardcover pamphlets with as few as 16 pages or as many as 48. It is best used for books with a small number of pages. I use the hardcover pamphlet, most often, for image books.
