This album has French folded pages, meaning that there are folds on the fore edge of all of the pages. The actual binding is a simple Japanese style. The hinge is bookcloth, and the rest of the cover is covered with paper.

Japanese Binding with ribbon

A quick project for any single sheets you may have left over from a book. The holes were punched with a 1/8 in punch and then bound with satin ribbon. (thanks Mark W for all the photo help).
