Description

From zines you can fold in a minute to luxurious leather journals and sumptuous sketchbooks, How to Make Books will walk you through the easy basics of bookmaking. Whether you’re a writer, a scrapbooker, a political activist, or a postcard collector, let book artist Esther K Smith be your guide as you discover your inner bookbinder. Using foolproof illustrations and step-by-step instructions, Smith reveals her time-tested techniques in a fun, easy-to-understand way.

Esther K Smith wrote and co-designed HOW TO MAKE BOOKS. At Purgatory Pie Press Dikko Faust hand-set wood and metal display type for the cover and chapter openers. That type was scanned into the design file and the book was published commercially by Random House.

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.

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!!
