Your books are beautiful.. Absolutely stunning pieces.

Are the threads at the top and bottom of the spin, part of the threads that hold the signatures together, or just decoration? I have noticed that on some books I own, that visible thread is missing, while others have it very plainly in view.

Most books in today's market have decorative corded spines.
It's all about mass production.

My books are created with the techniques of 16th to 18th century style.
All are made with true supported cords and hand sewn headbands,
Take a look ate my two tutorials on text block construction and Book construction to get a better visual of the process and the innards of the book.
They are in my gallery
Cheers
