SECRET BELGIAN BINDING BOOKS WORKSHOP AT WNYBAC

These books have a unique binding that allows them to be strong (like a case-bound book) but to also lay flat (like a coptic-bound book). They are durable and beautiful, albeit a little tricky to make. Once completed, it's difficult to see how they are constructed which adds to the "secret" part of their name.
