Make a model of an Islamicate leather frame binding held in the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library's collections. This book form showcases an especially beautiful material, such as cloth or marbled paper, by "framing" it with leather strips on all sides. Participants will sew a textblock with an unsupported link stitch and chevron-style headbands, and cover the binding with goat leather and ebru marbled paper.
