For Christmas, the little lady got me a book that I had drooled over at a local bookstore, Unnameable Books. The book is How to Make Books by Esther K. Smith.
I was taught bookbinding in New Mexico back in 2002 by an amazing artist, Bev Taylor. Since then I have made a few books, including the guest registry/photo album for a friend’s wedding.
If you are even mildly interested to making your own one-of-a-kind books, do yourself a favor and get this book. There are some very basic and quick books to start with and it works its way up to coptic stitching, which I have only done once, but with
great acceptable success.
This video shows a really neat “Instant Book” using techniques shown in this book.
