I took a short four-session workshop on book binding fundamentals. Here are two of my projects. The first is a traditional western hardcover bound book. The technique is called Perfect Binding. 1. Outside front cover 2. Inside front cover 3. A small portfolio box. The front/top flap is opened, revealing a small pamphlet-stitched blank book inside. I havent decided whether to put a simple cover on the pamphlet or draw an illustration on the top page to use as a cover.
