This book consists of 5 pamphlets of 4 sheets of paper folded and sewn together first. I was experimenting trying to make a book with more pages and it actually worked quite well. The 5 sections sewn together and to the binding of the thick yellow paper. I like the stitching on the outside of the binding. There are more pages to this book and the ribbon tie helps it stay closed and together. Keeping the content safe and protected. The inside paper is plain white paper.
