Bookbinding!

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. 
                                                                                                             - Wikipedia

These are from The Thistle Bindery
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. :)
