Isn't there a strip of brown paper usually glued to the spine that is absent from this book? I've also seen that sewn on fabric somewhere before, I just can't picture where. 
A side note: I had a beautiful Kim first - until I read it. Nearing the end it was missing an entire gathering. Painful.

I can't tell whether they were removed from a regular ML binding and sewn on tapes or are folded sheets that had not previously been bound.  I am certain that Random House never released a ML book with this style of sewing.
