Let's also credit Barbara Stephan, who translated and adapted Ikegami's book
for the English reader!

Dear Stab Binders, one and all,
It seems to me that there are a whole lot of folks out there who want to do
or are doing stab bindings but who want something for nothing.  If you
admire Eastern bindings, support the person who took the time to write out
the instructions and BUY THE BOOK!  Mr. Ikegami's genius is wonderfully
apparent throughout his book, and all of your queries will be answered by a
true master.  The photograph of that sweet little foot holding down the text
while a very sharp knife trims away the foredge is worth the price!  If you
make books, you need this particular tome in your reference library.
