Bookbinding scribbles

So because my project (gosh I really need to think of a name for this behemoth) involves small, adiposity handbound books containing survivor narratives, I started to do some scribbling of what I would like to do for stitching. I’m unsure, at this point, if any of these will actually work/look good/etc, but in the next week-two weeks here I will be doing some test samples! I have a few ideas about colour schemes, I could do the standard white paper/black font/black stitching but I’m also contemplating inverting that to black paper/white font/white stitching or even black paper/white font/red stitching.

That’s what I have so far, if anyone is particularly knowledgeable about bookbinding or has any suggestions of artists doing very intimate and delicate bookbinding please let me know!
