Overview

Everyone has a story to tell--so make your own book to tell it with! From the scissors that snip the pages to the glues and stitches and ties that bind them; from elaborate compound structures with pockets to multiple signatures in a thick, sewn volume, here are the techniques you need and the styles you want. Cut and fold pages in a simple accordion, or hide a second book inside. Create pop-ups, fan, and slot-and-tab books. Construct handscrolls and hanging ones, soft- and hardcovers, even portfolios and boxes. Hundreds of illustrations and diagrams will guide you, and dozens of striking pictures will seize your imagination!

I bought this book to get me started in making books with a handmade, artistic appeal (not finely-bound constructions). The author is an artist/writer and her book encourages you to showcase your prose, poetry or artwork in book form. There is a good range of easy-to-make book types that you can learn here. Tools and materials required are minimal & easy to find. Great sample pictures and straight-forward diagrams. However! there are many explanations & additional information missing in the instructions. Very frustrating when you're just starting out! Maybe not the best book for a beginner but definitely a worthy addition to one's library.
