Joseph Cornell, Bookbinding with shadows. End papers, edge decoration and prep for the end bands.

After sewing and rounding and backing Aero Linen is applied to the spine with adhesive and secondary sewing. The edges are sanded in preparation for the edge decoration.

The contrast of the finished edge decoration and the end papers highlights both.

Sections are flagged to the middle of the sections in readiness for the end banding. This will be in white silk over a laminated core of vellum and fairish goat.
