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.

The book is very very nice, very well done and clear. I imagined a small book but it's big! And I love its "maquette" (I don't know the world in English), its style. Thank you too for the dedicace and for the lovely gift. nMerci Esther et peut-être à bientôt un jour à Paris :-) nCecile
