This week I was determined to bind myself a book. I am a complete beginner to the whole process so I made sure to use a straight forward, and clear instructional book for my first project.
Bookcraft by Heather Weston is a wonderful resource for anyone looking to learn the basics of book binding.
Not only are there a number of simple and classic projects, but the entire book starts with an amazing introduction outlining all the materials and tools needed, with pictures!

I chose two of my favourite handmade Nepalese papers for the cover and end pages.
I really enjoyed the process! I know I’ll need a bit more experience before my products come out even and aligned, but that’s all part of the charm.
Now on to the next project! But, just let me stare at this one for a few hours longer…
