Little Book of Book Making: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Beautiful Handmade Books

Little Book of Book Making: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Beautiful Handmade Books

by Charlotte Rivers

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this honest review.

R: Recommended (This is at the top of the pile.)

Give it Time (It’ll grow on you.)

Pros:

  • Easy to read layout with informational text and photographic examples
  • Multiple examples from all over the world
  • Great hands-on, step-by-step projects
  • Ability to lay the book flat while working on your projects
  • Written without too much unexplained jargon

Cons:

  • The title led me to believe the book would focus more on making your own projects

Overall, I really enjoyed both the layout and subject matter.  Having recently completed a college course in bookbinding, I would highly recommend this book to anyone taking a similar class or who is interested in learning about bookbinding across the globe.  Public and school libraries would find this title to be a useful addition to their craft section.
