Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The author, whose love and dedication to this craft is more than obvious, begins her course with a rundown on optional materials as well as essential tools....Golden explores an amazing range of possibilities for journals, photo albums, poetry books, and more....An especially attractive crafts book.”—Booklist.

Synopsis:

Everyone has a story to tell — so make your own book to tell it with! From the scissors that snip the pages, to the glues and stitches and ties that bind them; from elaborate compound structures with pockets, to multiple signatures in a thick, sewn volume, here are the techniques you need and the styles you want. Cut and fold pages in a simple accordion, or hide a second book inside. Create pop-ups, fan, and slot and tab books. Construct handscrolls and hanging ones, soft and hardcovers, even portfolios and boxes. Hundreds of illustrations and diagrams will guide you, and dozens of striking pictures will seize your imagination!

This looks like an arts/crafts book, but it is more. It is a beautiful bridge between reading and writing, a lifestory of a passionate book artist finding her way, a freeing pathway to making your own poems and books to hold them, and a treasurechest of many book structures you can make, some as simple as a piece of paper and scissors. Everybody loves making a book. Once you make your first blank journal or weddding register, you'll be hooked. Beautiful, clear illustrations and a delight to read and use.
