''Kanji'' Book by mbah ''Kanji'' Book by mbah
I made this book for a friend who learns japanese and wanted it to practise kanji. The front is obviously inspired by the japanese flag and on the back I tried to recreate my signature in the style of a kanji.
Being finnished only one day after being asked for a book, this 11cm x 16cm, 256 pages (counting both sides) book is the fastest I made, and I'm quite pleased with its look and quality of crafting. Yet I'm still not happy with the photos I take.

Please feel encouraged to tell me what you think!

I couldn't find out how to translate this to english, and I don't know enough about book binding to know all the names of different styles, but the german book that taught me book binding says it's a "Deckenband mit mehreren Lagen".
The signatures are bound together with thread, some fabric bands that later keep book block and cover together are bound directly into this, then I additionally glued the back of the book block together.
I hope this could answer your question at least a little bit.

Oh thanks! It sounds like a tape binding, where you sew over support straps. It's very well done.
