Description

True DIY! If you are interested in giving book binding a try, but don't quite know where to begin, this kit is a great introduction.

Included are all of the supplies that you need to make one 3" x 4" book and complete instructions for four different Japanese stab bindings. The instructions are written out as well as illustrated to make each step clear. Choose to make one of the bindings with the included supplies and once you get the hang of it, you can make the other bindings with your own materials.

Included in this kit:

-Detailed instructions for four bindings (Japanese 4-Hole, Noble, Hemp-Leaf, and Tortoise-Shell)
-Hole punch template for each binding
-Papers for one book (a mix of ruled, grid, blank and vintage book pages)
-Waxed Irish linen thread
-Tapestry needle

You will need to provide just a few tools of your own:

-Awl, hole punch or paper drill
-Cutting mat
-Scissors
-Bone paper folder (optional)

I haven't put my book together yet but the instruction booklet is amazing. It is clearly writing with very detailed illustrations. I would have bought it just for that! Thank you!
