It has 65 pages, contains 84 photos and one sketch, instructions for the usual, one-colored Coptic headband, and the five others that I discovered a few months ago.
The last chapter is dedicated to troubleshooting. It contains some general tips and tricks, addresses those problems that I had while learning the stitches, and has a specific section for lefties.
As you can see on the right, the book opens well and stays nicely open even on the last pages (this here are pages 56 and 57).
I had instructions for the simple two-colored headband up here as a tutorial. Of course this headband is also contained in the book. The post here was an abbreviated version with only 9 instead of 14 photos.
Before I’ll offer them for sale it has to go through a round of more serious testing: Ideally I want to make M. try it out. I think he would be a perfect test candidate: he is good with learning from written instructions, but doesn’t know anything about bookbinding. As far as I can tell he never touched a book binding needle (and that even though he lives with me). If he can follow the instructions, I am sure you all will manage, too. But when I asked him this a few minutes ago, he seemed quite reluctant. Apparently he is not so eager to change the fact that he never touched a binder’s needle.
