Synopses & Reviews
Everyone loves handmade books--and these adorable mini volumes are generally easier to craft than their larger counterparts! Some even require only folding and stapling. This charming collection includes beautiful leather-clad journals, block print notepads, accordion-fold mini-zines, and others that feature interior pockets, unique closures, colorful stitching, and eye-catching bindings. An invaluable illustrated stitch guide provides the essential info for every binding.

Using different materials, paper, leather, recycled junk, wire and twine ‹ to teach you how to make traditionally bound books, or more unusual books. You'll be inspired." --Whip Up
