Rebinding of "Study for the Possibility of Hope"

I printed a new cover for "Study for the Possibility of Hope" on Crane's Lettra to rebind the book for entry in the Guild of Book Workers' member exhibition. The theme of the exhibition is "Horizon." The signatures are sewn through the spine using a pattern from Keith Smith's "Non-Adhesive Bindings Volume 2: 1- 2- & 3-Sectiion Sewings" called Contiguous X's (for an even number of X's). It's sewn using two needles and is much more complicated than it looks on the outside.
