Subject: [BKARTS] Headbands as part of sewing of the book

http://cool-palimpsest.stanford.edu/don/dt/dt1721.html

>>The original headbands were intrinsically a part of the sewing of the
book, and were used in lieu of kettle stitches in linking the sections
together. They were a part of the construction of the book, which possibly
explains why they were (and are) at both the head and tail, rather than just
at the head. <<

Does anybody has instructions how to work such a headband?
