A use-what-you-have, step by step introduction to book binding.

That's my new column at Unruly Paper Arts.  If you have time to peruse it, let me know if there's anything confusing--it made sense when I was writing it up, but does it read well?????  We'll see . . .

Here is the link:  A Use-What-You-Have, Step by Step Introduction to Book Binding.

 The finished book has a cloth covered cover, it's some random tie-dyed cotton from years ago, and

 I really like stamping over ephemera--this paper was someone's school notes at one time.

This page is old notebook paper--such a pretty image, our daughter plays violin, so I'm a little partial to this one.  Thank you to Rubber Dance Art Stamps for the beautiful stamps, love that Thoreau quote, too!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!  (And seriously, if you see something hinky in that tutorial, let me know.)
