Yesterday I finished the testing binding for our local guild's collaborative book. It had been awhile since I cased in a book. It's rather amazing how much I forget between bindings ... and also how much I remember of the tiny details. Unfortunately, often the details I remember are the same ones I've forgotten until just after that detail is executed.
