monday

Lovely relaxing weekend away. A chance to catch up, a walk on the beach...


And a few examples of single sheet bindings. All the ways I could think of today (and not including Keith Smith's single sheet coptics, too complicated for the first lesson tomorrow, a bit too complicated for me!)


Various Japanese style bindings, with a few cover variations...




A stiff leaf binding (or, to put it more simply: using a hinge to stick the pages together, in various ways)


A kind of concertina pamphlet stitch combination, with pages sandwiched between the concertina folds (I like this one!)


And my favorite, an origami fold into which pages can slot...


Tomorrow I'm going to try a stab binding onto a stick, a perfect binding and a box/portfolio type thing. 

Have I missed any?

They´re all very nice, but, like you, I really, really like the last one with the origami fold. It´s beautiful and it has the kind of witty "engineering" that I love!

Congrats on your work!

hello, i've just found your blog and I'm fascinated. I have always had a 'thing' about paper and would love to learn how to make books. Can't wait to read some more of your posts.

These photos of your folded books are themselves works of art. So glad to have just discovered your blog!

Especially like the last one but they all look really nice and very photogenic. Nice work.
