Have you ever looked carefully at your books? Did you noticed the threads that binds the books? I love bookbinding.
Bookbinding is the process of physically assembling a book from an ordered stack of paper sheets that are folded together into sections or sometimes left as a stack of individual sheets. The stack is then bound together along one edge by either sewing with thread through the folds or by a layer of flexible adhesive.

Below are the books I bind before.
|Bookbinding is somewhat like sewing. You can try to design the spine of the book.|
|You can design the cover with various techniques. Let your imagination run wild. You can try spray paint or use zentangle method to draw.|
|Believe or not, bookbinding method can be used to do carousel books. This I learnt from another instructor. Carousel book can be opened as above or like a book like the below picture. You can create story scenes or make this into photo frames.|
|I have yet to slot in photos. When I get a new printer, I will do that. :)|
