Step-by-step foolproof instructions, showing you how to make this lovely journal. The tutorial includes many detailed photographs and diagrams, ensuring success even if you have never made a book before.

The book has 6 sections of 4 folios (folded pages). That's 24 folios, making 48 leaves or 96 pages (sides).

It measures about 3 x 3.5 x 1 ins OR 8 x 9 x 3 cm

It's a nice pocket size and as it is small, it will not cost you much to make, apart from your time.

Once you've made one, you will want to make more. It's addictive - seriously!!

You can then start making large versions to your own specifications.

The file is in PDF format and may be printed for personal use.

The photograph shows books made by members of my bookbinding class, none of whom had made a book before. As you can see these have plain covers. The tutorial also gives ideas for decorating your cover, including tips for dyeing and painting the leather.
