I won’t lie to you, making a case bound (hard cover) is tricky and it takes practice, but I LOVE making them. I first learned how to make case bindings at the North Bennet Street School in Boston and I still have many hours of practice ahead of me. I made several of them this week for book number 27 in my 50 Book Project.
The above books have Japanese Chiyogami Yuzen paper on the covers with black book cloth on their spines.
These two books have navy blue book cloth on the outside and my own hand marbled paper end sheets.
Have you ever made this type of book? What was your experience? I’d love to know – leave me your thoughts in the comments.
