Recap: Book-binding Workshop

Book-binding Workshop

Last semester we had the wonderful Douglas Beavans give us a workshop about book-binding. We learned how to tell the grain in paper, to work with it, to bind the pages and create book covers, and we even made a box! There is something quite special about making things with your own hands, in the “old-fashioned” way. I’ve been making my own sketchbooks since, and I love the texture of the book cloth and the inside paper patterns. I was seduced by the analog and ended the workshop with these books in my hands.
