Fun and Unique Approaches to Handmade Structures

The book includes all the basics (tools, adhesives, archival properties, cutting and terminology) through detailed and highly illustrated instructions and includes unique and special methods for finishing the pages. It covers adding elements such as paper dying, copy transfers, stamping, flocking and other decorative treatments.

What Reviewers Are Saying
This is a book of basic bookbinding and box-making techniques by academic artist and instructor Rinehart. Step-by-step projects include some of the most popular types of books and boxes made by hobbyists. The detailed instructions include line drawings, and both a brief section on surface decoration and a gallery of works by other artists are included. Although there are other specialized books on this topic with more extensive projects, this is a good basic selection for public libraries. - Library Journal February 15, 2007
