Book Binding Development

On the 2nd of October me and another class mate came into the university to do our own book binding.

The process was suprisingly easy and enjoyable I think I will try this again with some different materials to see the different outcomes.

We ended up making a square bound book each made from paper and fabric in the spine I think it would be a good idea to try some stronger material like card for the cover and to use a guillotine or scalpel instead of tearing paper to give it a straighter edge and probably improve the over all quality of the book

Here are some images of the tools I used and of the finished book
