Synopses & Reviews
“Browning...has an artistic touch that sets her book apart....Her projects make good use of handmade paper, natural objects, and currently popular decorative techniques such as thermal embossing. Step-by-step instructions are given for making bindings and lacing entirely from scratch....Excellent addition to public library collections.”—Library Journal
Take your pick from a wealth of books so original they'll charm you right away and so useful you'll want to make them to preserve your thoughts, photographs, and memorabilia in the manner they deserve. Construct everything from folded to closed spine to envelope books, which expand so you can fill the "pocket pages" with small treasures. Stuff holiday stockings with tiny notebooks made from sticky pads, or emboss an elegant faux leather album. Or, try your hand at a unique "wandering book": open it up and unfurl a three-dimensional display. Then personalize every volume with ideas for a Chinese folded scroll, a botanical journal, baby book, and business travel book, to name but a few. Even produce decorative papers!
