Awesome Handmade Books: Japanese Stab Bindings

So with so many bookbinding fans out there, I thought I would do a weekly roundup of some of my favorite handmade books out there on the internet, many of which I’ve conveniently rounded up on my Handmade Books + Journals Pinterest board.

This week: Japanese Stab Bindings!
