Discover the wonders of making books or renew your skills to develop a solid foundation in various binding styles. Begin by creating a book from a single page, then move on to pamphlet and accordion-fold structures. Learn to rip a text block by hand, glue a bubble-free cover, and make accurate measurements without a ruler. Get creative using decorative paper, mixed media, and personal memorabilia to experiment with surface design for long-stitch and Coptic bindings.
