Book #6

Hardcover 3-hole Pamphlet
The first hardcover book that I ever made was a hardcover pamphlet, with a 3-hole pamphlet stitch sewing. Ever since then, I have always really liked this combination. This book has one signature, bound with a 3-hole pamphlet stitch. Then the signature is cased into a hardcover. This particular book has yellow leather on the spine and Japanese Chyiogami on the covers. The pages are a mixture of yellow papers from my extensive paper hoard.

This small journal is available in my Etsy shop, where there are additional photos of it too.

That is a really good looking book you have there. I wish that I had the artistic talent to do that! The last time I tried something like that, it ended up looking like a 1-graders project. That is why for the next time I make a book, I'm going to get it done professionally. Keep doing what you are doing, they look great! http://www.springdalebindery.com/gallery
