Here is my finished book...
Along with some notes taken in the workshop about the two books I made...
Rounded Spine Book - (Hardback), 4 papers to a section.
- fold them all in half
- cut teeny holes for needle, '' '' '' '' (this sort of distance).
- SEW, Kettle stitch on 3rd layer then there after.
- GLue down spine, let it dry, another layer.
- POUND the spine to curve it.
- Stick on tape to strengthen the spine.
- Make cover, stick to inside pages and put in press with string to form embossed spine bit.
Here are some photos of my finished book...
The off-cuts were also pretty cute, and could possibly be used as a little typography book or story book, within visual language?
Notes Concertina/Pocketed/Origami Books:
- Height work out all measurements
- Mark off with ruler and needle
- 10cm ---> across and then score down
- Fold all the same way, INWARDS.
- Fold the corners IN and then OUT
- Fold all OUT again
- Then reverse the triangles from, /\ >>TO>> \/
- The book is finally halved then adding a cover.
(20cm high, scored 10cm apart, If you wanted to overlap, the height needs to be HIGH.
- Using a fine concertina for a spine. You can stitch a bit of concertina when you bind, it can make things stick easier.
Here is the one I made...
I thought these may come in useful as they have pockets which would be good for a stamp collection possibly? The fold kind of look like envelopes? These are initial thoughts seeing as I dont know what I am doing yet!
I was speaking to Sarah and she told me that I might be interested in Daniel Essig,who
