Make Your Own


binding.jpgHello, before I sign off for the long Christmas weekend (have fun everyone!), I'd like to introduce a new semi-regular feature: Make Your Own. In it I'll give you information, instructions, ideas, and links for all kinds of book and magazine making. So, let's get started. It may be too late for you to make a book as a Christmas present but maybe if you're spending the week at your parents' house, you'll have some time/be bored enough to give a new project a try.

Here's a thorough and easy to understand article on how to perfect bind a book by hand. Brian Sawyer, a writer and editor for Make and Craft magazines, writes very clearly and includes some photos to help make the project easier.

And, of course, you are welcome to make and send us books. We'd love it.
