This book will teach readers how to make books by hand. Through eleven projects, crafters learn how to indulge their self-expressive creativity. Starting with the basics and moving to more challenging bindings and formats, each project will include complete step-by-step instructions, a visual materials list, and ideas for uses and variations. Includes information on how to find and use new and unusual materials such as handmade paper, corrugated cardboard, gift wrap, foil, leather and more. Tips for personalizing their books along with a bit of the history, culture and the lore of book and paper making are also included.
