Notebook: Tight back and raised bands, meaning that the leather on the back is attached directly to the stitched spine of the textblock. The bands are the actual cords on which the signatures are sewn. The leather comes from a well-worn couch that used to be in my childhood home. Front and back covers are thin and somewhat flexible.

Mads Hobye's PhD dissertation: The tradition at our school is to give successful PhD students a hand-bound copy of their dissertation. As I was the supervisor for Mads, I found it appropriate to do the binding myself. Leather back and corners, false bands, closed hinge and beveled front and back.
