Making a Book

Occasionally my daughter will come to me and ask me to make her a book. We first started out with simple single-signature books, but then I found this wonderfully beautiful book, The Little Book of Book Making. This book has taken our book-making skills to a new level. It shows the art of book-making. It has tutorials for binding, covers, and pages as you would expect to find. However it also contains a wide array of book artists — and they really are artists– with their various skills of those techniques. In this video I share the process that we went through to make a simple small book with 5 signatures using a coptic-stitch binding. It’s far from perfect, but it will give you an idea of our process.
