Wooden Coptic Books

Wooden Coptic Books

Developed as early as the fourth century, this Ethiopian binding style has withstood the test of time. The elegant sewing structure, combined with wooden covers, opens a wide range of possibilities for both the beginner and the advanced bookbinder. Using simple hand tools, participants will drill, shape, and smooth book covers. Finishing includes sealing wooden covers with milk paint and a coating of wax as well as adding a leather closure.
