The Orihime Binding

Cathryn Miller of Byopia Press has posted instructions for a woven book structure. Called the Orihime Binding, it is named for the heroine of the Tanabata legend. It is a three signature binding with a single sheet at the centre of each signature. The structure is held together by paper strips that weave through the pages and the cover.

The post includes a printable pdf of the book and full instructions for assembly.
