Class Description:
The MarcoPolo variation laces the covers together to create an alternating pattern at the spine.

The Cross Structure binding is a non-adhesive binding that offers much freedom to the text block. These 20th century designs created by Carmencho Arregui are greatly inspired by the Long Stitch bindings of the medieval era. It is suitable in conservation or new bindings, such as travel journals or decorative bindings. The structure is uniquely constructed by interlocking the front and back cover at the spine.
