Overview

Bookworks is a comprehensive introduction to the exciting craft of bookmaking. It takes the basic skills of bookbinding and combines them with contemporary bookmaking techniques, enabling anyone to create beautiful works of art.

The recent upsurge of interest in books and bookmaking has attracted both artists and craftspeople, culminating in an exciting array of innovative approaches to this time-honored handicraft. The book in its various forms, from albums and journals to notebooks and gift pieces, is valued here for its utilitarian functions as well as for being a medium for artistic expression. A book can be a blank portfolio for inserting photographs, artworks, and specially chosen words, or it can be a decorative work of art that uses the basic form of the book as its foundation.

Bookworks is divided into two sections. The first takes you through all the necessary materials and basic techniques, from accordion folds to Japanese stitching, with inspirational galleries of examples for firing your imagination. The final section is filled with ten unique projects that use the techniques developed earlier and include jazzed-up old favorites, such as a scrapbook and a diary, as well as more unusual forms, such as the theater and star-shaped books.
Cast your eyes over the wealth of stunning designs and develop your bookmaking skills to produce a wonderful library of artworks.
