hand bound Danish millimeter binding

This is a millimeter binding which is said to of been developed by the Danish binder Henrik Park during WWII. It was produced as a stylish and economical way of producing leather bindings when materials were scarce. For this binding I used bookcloth and some paste papers that I made to cover the binding.
