Complete step-by-step instruction, full-color project photos, detailed step illustrations, diagrams, and tips. Creating Books & Boxes presents a new volume on book-making techniques by contemporary book instructor Benjamin Rinehart. Rinehart presents a comprehensive resource for creating basic book-making structures as a starting point, but then adds unique twists to make them a little more surprising, fun, and dimensional. The book includes all the basics (tools, adhesives, archival properties, cutting and terminology), through detailed and highly illustrated instructions and includes unique and special methods for finishing the pages. It covers adding elements such as paper dying, copy transfers, stamping, and paste papers. Sophisticated, beautiful, and original projects in a simplified and accessible presentation make this a perfect book for beginners and experienced book-makers alike.
