I finished the book I'll be entering into the next Bookbinding Etsy Street Team Book Swap (deadline Feb. 29th). This will be my first time participating in the swap, and I'm really looking forward to it.
The binding is a combination link and long-stitch, and the leather is one of the nicest I've ever seen...pebble-grain black cherry goatskin. I just love it! The striations on the leather make it look almost like tree bark. Very cool. I hope whoever gets it will enjoy it, and forgive my "newbieness" to bookbinding. :)
