Bookbinding

Today I have learnt how to bookbind, which is something I've wanted to learn for quite some time. So, when the wonderful Sarah Trigg from church said she was going to do a bookbinding workshop, I was oh so excited. And here's what I made...




The inside cover is made from a book cover. Sarah has accumulated a number of these from the library where she works, and they work well for this type of project.

  1. Very nice. Is it stuck or sewn?

  2. It's sewn - it gives a much more aesthetically pleasing finish when you can see the stitching, and also means the spine can't break as it does when you glue the pages.
