binding with cut-out design in parchment

To create a binding with cut-out design in parchment I worked on “Beschouwende en werkdadige Hovenier – Konst of Inleiding tot de waare oeffening der Planten” By Johann Hermann Knoop, edited  “Te Leeuwarden, printed by Abraham Ferwerda, 1753”.

The binding is based on N° 70 in the catalogue 93 "Livres rare, six siécles de reliures", by Pierre Berès.

I recreated the technique myself, cause I found no description.  The only other pictures I found were in "Die Einbände der Palatina in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek” I p. 262 en Afb. CLXXV by Ilse Schunke.
