Learn the classic art of bookbinding, with 25 inspiring projects
Bookbinding is a classic craft that has been practised for over 1,000 years, and is reaching new heights of design and innovation today. This volume is packed with inspirational ideas that are highly original, including a college folder made from a pair of jeans, an elegant wedding album covered with beautiful silk flowers, and a garden notebook complete with miniature spade and fork. You can even make a padded cloudshaped book in which you can record the fantastic dreams of the night before. The 25 projects can all be made with simple paper, card and cloth materials, and using basic tools, many of which can be found around the house. Whatever you choose to make, the wealth of material and ideas shown here means that you can create a wide range of special gifts and heirlooms.
