bookbinding - leather spine sewn on cords

A nice little 5½" x 4" (14cm x 10cm) hardback with 124 pages (both sides). The cover is Italian hand marbled paper. This is sewn on cords with leather glued directly to the back so that the cords show.

The paper is distressed with black walnut ink from WhiteDragonPaper.

I'm still making errors (leather at the tail was slit too far, for example), but I'm not making the same ones. I've been working more frequently and there is a slight bit of improvement.
