Re: [BKARTS] Nag Hammadi prototype



Dear Victoria
  The article you need is by John Sharpe:
  The Earliest Bindings with Wooden Board Covers: The Coptic Contribution
to Binding Construction
   in the published proceedings of the International COnference on
Conservation and Restoration of Archival and Library Materials (April
1996), ed. Carlo Federici and P.F. Munafo, vol. 2., pgs. 455-478.

If you read Szirmai's chapter on Coptic bindings and John Sharpe's article
on details of various kinds of constructions, you'll be in good shape to
try your hand at a model.  Good luck!
