v26 Bookbinding at Leksands folkhögskola

I've been away on one week's course in bookbinding at Leksands Folkhögskola. Every year we are 11 people that participate at summer school - advanced bookbinding for Leif Halldorf. Leif is responsible and head teacher at the bookbinding education at Leksands folkhögskola.
It's always a fantastic week full of laugher, inspiration and knowledge - the best week of the year.

This year was devoted to full leather binding in French Technique; round and backed to 90° joint, with raised cords, hand made silk head bands in french style and silk end paper.
One week for full leather binding in French Technique is a very short time - but Leif is a very skilled teacher and he manage to guide us through every 48 steps.

My book is far from perfect - so now I will start to make a new one -hopefully with fewer errors.
