The ties that bind...books Part Two

Yesterday I posted some sewn bindings on books that I have made. Today I am going to show examples of sewn bindings by others.
As I mentioned yesterday, the long-stitch binding offers endless variations. Here are a few from San Diego Book Arts:


I love the raw aspect of this one from Garlic Harvest Studio and the way the stitches occupy such a small area on the spine:

Well, I was really hoping to show you some criss-cross ribbon bound albums, but oddly, now that I am looking I can't find any. I am going to give up and go do some binding myself.
