This is a fabulous book. It has more variety of form than any other book arts book. There's something for everyone here. Good instructions, and color pictures of each book. I use this book all the time.

Excellent variety of forms explained carefully with good illustrations and examples. Artist commentary included. Generous and encouraging direction for creating text to make each book a work of personally expressive art.

A large collection of various book binding techniques with histories and where the technique came from! Really beautiful pictures, helpful photo instructions, inspiring books with amazingly unique touches; this book really inspires one to make their own. It starts with simple, folded books and moves on to more complicated binding and sewing. A crafty challenge that is great for all ages!
