Jan 05, Kerry rated it liked it Shelves: This is something I’ve always wanted to try, but I have never been able to find a really great resource.

This is probably the best one I’ve come across, but it doesn’t have all of the bindings I’m interested in. I can really do without all the artsy books as well. I simply have absolutely no interest in creating something like that and I’m not really interested in looking at them either.


Oh well, the other thing that’s holding me back is all the equipment! I just don’t have the money for all tha This is something I’ve always wanted to try, but I have never been able to find a really great resource.

I just don’t have the money for all that stuff. I will do this one day! Mar 20, Chris rated it really liked it Shelves: This book provides a bit more history of various book forms and includes some more unusual forms, such as carousel and tunnel books, along with how to use paper cutting and folding techniques in the books you make. Jun 17, Buchdoktor rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ein Deckenband mit mehreren Lagen wird als Halbleinenband gefertigt.

Eine einfache Klebebindung, eine Bindung mit Buchschrauben und die japanische Blockheftung werden vorgestellt. Wer die klassischen Modelle beherrscht, kann sich am Doppelbuch versuchen oder an Flaggenbuch und Karussellbuch, die beide auf der Leporelloform basieren. Insgesamt eine lohnende Anschaffung. May 27, Jen rated it really liked it Shelves: I really love books that show step by step tutorials with photography rather than drawn diagrams. There’s something about seeing the process “live” rather than theoretically.

It makes it a lot easier to copy and thus learn a technique a lot easily. I think this book has the easiest explanation of a pamphlet stitch I’ve seen; it was really easy to do, which is great since I had to bind a book just hours before it was due! May 04, Mads P. I was really disappointed with how few binding techniques are in this book.

Bookcraft : Techniques for Binding, Folding, and Decorating to Create Books and More

Jan 02, Ezekiel rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book makes bookmaking seem both really appealing and doable. Just what I want from a book about a craft. Not to mention the glorious examples at the end. I found myself pondering how exactly I would do something like the examples, and then and even better how to create a conceptual piece that would be entirely my own. Jul 12, Steen rated it it was amazing.

Of all my bookbinding titles, this is my favorite. It is not only well-written with clear instructions, it also lacks the cheese factor that plagues most craft books. The true test – I have actually created genuine, finished projects using Bookcraft.

That’s the strongest endorsement, trust me! May 25, Hadi rated it really liked it Shelves: Used to make my own notebooks many many years ago and this has inspired me to do it again and provided simple instructions to do so.


Going to buy a copy of my very own. Dec 12, K. Blaha rated it it was amazing Shelves: My favorite book-binding reference.

Nice color pictures, and doesn’t omit too many steps. Sep 08, Gigi rated it really liked it Shelves: One of the better examples of both booocraft and general book binding. Oct 28, Tamara rated it really liked it Shelves: Some cool techniques, including embossing and making pop-up staircases.

Sad that all of the heaather use “virgin” books instead of altered books. Sep 13, Rachaelita rated it liked it Shelves: Very helpful, informative and fun book.

Another one to add to the “to buy” pile. Jan 17, Sally rated it really liked it Shelves: So far, good fun! Nov 19, Jamie rated it liked it Shelves: Great photo instructions for simple and elegant books, plus some more complex effects and projects.

Sep 22, Tammy rated it liked it Shelves: Too intense of projects for me to do There are great tips for making books though! Dec 22, Casey rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very good for beginners. Full color photos showing all the steps which are clearly written. Explains all the supplies. Variety of binding types. Oct 04, Janni added it. A really nice introduction to bookbinding — so far, I’m really having fun with it.
