I ♥ Handmade Books

Look what I received today! My copy of I Love Handmade Books.

I was asked by the author to participate by sending in pictures of some of handbound books and information about them (and myself), as well as a couple of tutorials.

Alas, my Japanese stab binding tutorial didn’t make it in (cut because it was too long) but the French Link Stitch tutorial was included.

Pretty fun, to be in a published book! Also neat to see work by blog-friends Ruth and Lestaret. Check it out on Amazon.com. It appears it was also released as this version, but I don’t know how many copies are available.

  1. Thanks, Becca! I’m taking your recommendation on this one. I haven’t found many books about bookmaking that are all that helpful…ironic, eh? It’s been years since my two bookbinding classes, so I’m learning a lot of it all over again.

    • Liz,
      The tutorial portion of this book isn’t huge, though it does have the basics of about a dozen binding styles, plus a few brief tutorials on papers and covers. But perhaps some of the artists’ books will inspire you!

  2. Congratulations! I stull haven’t made a book, as I had planned to do when I started following your blog. The book is available in the Netherlands as well via bol.com, I’ve put it on my wishlisht. I think having a book open next to me on my workdesk is a good way to start!

  3. Yay! I know this comment is late, but I just saw this post as I was surveying your site for a nice tutorial to send to a friend – I was so glad to see you in the book because I specifically suggested that they include you, when they asked me if I had any other bookbinders to recommend!

    • Thanks! It was pretty cool to be a participant, though I was a bit disappointed my JSB tutorial got cut. But, they are kind of long… guess I’ll have to save it for my own book of tutorials! :)
