How to Bind Single Sheets by SeaLemon.


updownbindery:

So, at the request of the lovely pondweed, I’m in the progress of creating a photo essay (not quite tutorial) on the process of creating and casing in a hard cover book. This is part 1. I’m not sure how many parts there will be. Fewer than 5, I hope. 

Binding a French Groove Book. 

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Appendix (video)

Step the first: Raid your stash! Find all the amazing papers and cloth you’ve been collecting and pick a few. Maximize the awesomeness of color/texture/pattern/style mixing. 

Step the second: Prep your text block. You gotta fold your signatures and then sew those puppies up. In this example, I’m using a french link style. After you sew, you’ve gotta press and glue. (And later on, we’ll reinforce and do headbands and stuff. But first, that’s in the press). 

Step the third: Cut your boards. You’ll need a front cover, a back cover, and a spine board. 

Want even MOAR detail on the steps I took? Check out the full album (since it was too many photos to upload here) with lots o’ fun captions. I’ll be adding more pics there and here as I finish up the book. 

I hope you enjoy this book-y madness!

The linkstitch journal I made. Well, it’s actually a combination of linkstitch and longstitch. It was the first time I used this leather for this type of journal and I loved the results.
I sell it here.

It is waiting for someone to fill its pages :)
