French-style binding

Sewn-on-flattened cords this style of fine binding is similar to the English-style recessed cord binding and uses a hollow spine construction. The cords are flattened and the spine of the textblock lined extensively to produce a very smooth surface. Faux raised bands can be added to the spine prior to covering or the spine can stay smooth. This style of binding is delicate in looks and feel, with work involved in shaping the boards to produce an elegant surface for covering.
