If you’re a printmaker and would like to transform some of your work into simple notebooks, this is a fun journal project. It’s a single section sewing with a Bow Tie stitch pattern and is sourced from Keith Smith’s Non-Adhesive Bindings Volume II.
I use the following supplies in the video below. If you can’t see the video properly, click on the “full screen” option in the lower right of the screen. Here’s a direct link to the video if it won’t play in your browser:
Here are a few tips mentioned in the video to keep in mind while making this book:
- Ensure that grain of cover and signatures run in same direction, and that the cover is square.
- A blunt needle is useful for this sewing.
- The length of thread for the binding measures 3 times the height of the book
