Sheets, grained short, are folded into a binder's fold
(fold, slit, fold, slit, fold)

Book block sits snugly in the spine.
Endpapers are adhered over the torn edges.
(They should be glued first. They aren't glued yet in this picture.)
The cover paper is a trimmed piece of Tyvek envelope, stained with black acrylic ink.

The half-cloth binding is a combo of black book cloth spine and
mulberry paper-backed flannel sheet that feels like suede.
So it would not ravel, I glued a little folded square to the end of the bookmark ribbon.
