Description

This is my second book. It is rare--but I have a few copies.

Everyone loves a good book, but what’s better than one you’ve made by hand? And not just any straightforward book, but simple pop-up books, flip books, magic pamphlets, pop-up maps, and accordions! Esther K Smith, author of How to Make Books, unlocks the secrets of making tricky book forms even if you’ve never worked with paper before.

While some of these 25 projects can be made by middle school children with help, I designed them for adults—the adult who’s a kid at heart! With step-by-step directions and charming illustrations, a few carefully placed cuts and an array of folds and twists almost magically become a colorful, multidimensional book.

My 5th book, MAKING BOOKS WITH KIDS is the one to get for ages 6 - ∞ (and beyond)

My friend absolutely loves these! She's very excited that they're both wearable AND readable, and they look stylish, too. They also shipped quickly and arrived quickly (which made up for me having missed her birthday). Thank you!!

I have always admired this book. Checked it out several times from my local library and now I am a happy owner of this book. If you are a serious bookbinder or simply like to book bind for fun like me, add this one to your collection and follow the easy steps for a nice artistic book collection.
