Fourth attempt at book binding.
WOW! this looks awesome!
Did you make the design on the front?
i would love to do this some day… if its not too much trouble, could you point me in the direction of any webpages or books where you got your instructions/process from?
The front & back cover were taken out of this book and all the other art was taken from here.
For starters I practiced with this and this video to make the text block (the pages part) and then I basically took the info for making a hardcover cloth cover and used paper instead (because I don’t have any cloth, or book binding board either so I used cardboard).
Basically to get started you will need a whole bunch of paper, a bone folder, an alm, book binding needles, pva glue and a brush, and a bunch of nice paper for the end pages and to decorate the covers.
I also stalk the book binding tag on here for inspiration and new ideas.
