another ordinary life
[…] new page titled “handmade books” featuring some pictures of the little notebooks made by me has also been added here. […]
Books are looking nice. If you decide to make and finish your friend’s wedding photo book, take some photos of it so we can see. 🙂
thanks for stopping by! if it materialises, will definitely do so.
Japanese bookbinding is very fun indeed!!
Thanks for stopping by my website. Looking forward to more of your craft projects!
PS: took a peek at your flickr photos, THEY ARE AWESOME! 😀
Awesome work. Most of it is section bound? How do you trim the three edges of the book after stitching and final binding?
thanks for the compliment!
i try not to have to trim the three exposed edges by only using as many sheets per signature (what you call a section) as the thickness of each sheet permits before uneven edges result on the three sides.
so if using four sheets folded in two causes uneven edges, i will reduce it to three sheets folded in two and press them overnight under heavy books.
Come work for me my little Sputnik sweetheart.
