This is a comprehensive introduction to the craft of bookmaking. It takes the traditional basic skills of bookbinding and combines them with contemporary techniques which will enable every reader to create beautiful works of art. There is an exciting array of innovative approaches to this time-honoured handicraft, and many of these are sampled here, showing you the exciting forms a book can take.From albums and journals to notebooks and gift pieces, the book is valued here as a medium for artistic expression as well as function.The projects will allow you to create books that are blank portfolios for inserting photographs, artworks, and specially chosen words, or books that are decorative works of art using the basic form as a foundation. The book is divided into two sections, the first of which takes you through all the necessary materials and basic techniques, with inspirational examples in full-colour to fire your imagination. The second section includes ten unique projects that use the techniques developed earlier.
