From the Publisher
"Oh, the wonderfulness. The variety. The inventiveness. This book contains a whole bunch of DIY mini book projects from the sweet and simple to the complex and artistic. Using different materials, paper, leather, recycled junk, wire and twine ‹ to teach you how to make traditionally bound books, or more unusual books. You'll be inspired." --Whip Up

    Love the mini book ideas!

    Have you ever wanted to make your own book? Not write a book, but actually make one? I’ve always been intrigued by the process of bookmaking, so I couldn’t wait to read more about it in Making Mini Books. The book has a wide range of ideas and materials to work with and it goes from the easiest to hardest projects. I focused on the books at the front, although the later ones are just gorgeous and I would love to work up to those! Twenty two expert bookmakers contributed to Making Mini Books and I really appreciated each of their unique designs.

    I had never considered that I could transform a matchbook into a tiny stapled volume, complete with lovely covers. The Lil’ Rainbow book is filled with pages the color of the rainbow and when it’s elastic band is taken off, it unfolds into a rainbow shape! Many of the books require stitching, but Making Mini Books includes detailed steps to walk you through completion of your miniscule masterpiece.
