    Book details

The beautiful, creative, and ancient art of bookbinding offers countless design options for selecting exquisite papers and board, fabrics for the cover, ribbons to use as markers, and other decorative touches that capture a book's spirit. From aligning and folding the sheets to stitching the body to adding attractive endpapers, this manual provides in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals, giving you the skills to fashion personalised note, recipe, and date books in a range of styles. It covers all the materials (including adhesives, seams, and tapes); cutting the paper; forming the book block; and reinforcing bindings. Make a planner with a two-part binding, and another with a rounded spine. Do the binding on a homemade sewing frame, or bind with nails if you don't want to stitch. Each one is far lovelier when handcrafted.
