How to Make Books, Albums, Slipcases, and More

There’s nothing like making your own sketchbook, or wrapping a favorite book in the perfect homemade slipcase. And you can create it all yourself! Select the tools and materials you’ll need, master basic book-binding techniques, and practice your new skills on 12 eye-catching projects. Then explore the gallery of variations for more inspiration to make each book form your own. Whether you’re an experienced book binder or new to the art, Book Art Studio Handbook will help you take your books to the next level.
 
With Book Art Studio Handbook, you’ll learn how to:
 
- Set up your workspace or studio
- Choose the right board, paper, book cloth, and other supplies for your project
- Fold a textblock, make a sewing template, glue a cover, and practice other essential techniques
- Create albums: Imagine your photos in an Accordion Album with Frames, for example
-  Create books: How about a flexible Tacketed Book to customize?
- Create enclosures: From Slipcase to French Box
- Challenge yourself: Try your hand at an advanced project, such as a Travel Journal

Synopsis:

As the “book” morphs and evolves into a malleable, digital file, interest in the classic form is reignited in book lovers and crafters. Book Art Studio Handbook offers readers a comprehensive and accessible guide to not only the nuts and bolts of this classic art, but insight into the artisan’s lifestyle. This book goes beyond quick craft projects and into the heart of bookmaking, binding, letterpress printing, decorative cover techniques, book conservation, and other book arts. It is an essential companion book for all paper lovers and bibliophiles—especially as the book as object becomes more prominent a concept.

About the Author

Stacie Dolin is a bookbinder and consummate crafter located in Arlington, MA. After working in the silkscreen industry for a number of years, she moved to Boston to study bookbinding at the North Bennet Street School. She now teaches numerous bookbinding workshops and does independent binding and book repair. When not playing with books, Stacie knits, spins, and quilts, and looks for ways to integrate her fiber activities into her bookbinding.Amy Lapidow is a hand bookbinder, trained through The North Bennet Street School and several other institutions including Rare Book School and CBBAG. She teaches through the NBSS workshop program, where she has developed classes on a number of bookbinding concepts. Her personal interest is taking historic bookbinding structures and updating them by using alternate materials and for contemporary uses. Her work has been seen in 500 Handmade Books and as part of the exhibit One Book Many Interpretations at The Chicago Public Library, where she combined a classic binding style with QR codes. She lives in Somerville, MA.
