My newest obsession (yeah, I know yet another) - bookbinding, I love books, big books, small books, picture books, new books, old books...........
I've started with coptic binding and have made 4 so far, they are not made of the finest materials but for my first ones I just needed to practice, I LOVE making them.
The larger one is fabric covered in which I put a coat of decopauge over so it will stay clean, the white/beige and yellow ones are covered in a flocked paper and the book w/ the birds is just regular paper - all were made with regular copy paper and used AstroBrites in the case of the blue one.
The picture above are the inside covers of the 3 smaller ones - I tried gluing the first and last pages to the inside of the blue one but it came out wrinkly so I didn't bother including it in the picture :/
I'm off to finish working on a couple larger art journals Ive started using watercolor and other good paper, I'll try ribbon binding on one of those.
