BOOKBINDING TUTORIAL part I by lenoki BOOKBINDING TUTORIAL part I by lenoki
EDIT: since people are apparently having trouble (lol), you need to DOWNLOAD this tutorial to see the full view. come on guys xD


part II: [link]

PHEW!

ok so like i said, i've been working on a book binding tutorial, since i know that i would've been so grateful for something like this back when i didn't have a clue how to make a book but really wanted too :D

this took me all day, so i hope it's helpful, and i hope you can understand what i'm going on about xD some parts were really difficult to explain in writing...
and it includes all my secrets, so i hope those of you who do give it a go appreciate it!


obviously this is only part I, and it includes making your covers and inside pages. hopefully i'll be able to put more work into finishing it tomorrow, otherwise i won't be able to get the rest up till after christmas and you'll all be stuck with half a book lol!


this is going to be the same style of book as this one: [link]
in case you were interested in having a look at what it will look like when it's done :)


ANYWAY. if you do take a stab at bookmaking and you use my tutorial give me a shout, i'd love to see how you do!

and if there are any questions so far, post them here and i'll gladly answer them if i can ;)

coNstantine2530 noted me with BOOKBINDING TUTORIAL part I by =lenoki "I think everyone should be able to make books.. it's such a cheap, easy thing" says the author, and I must agree. This tutorial covers every aspect of what you need to know about bookbinding, making it really fun and appealing. When I first read it, I couldn't help but to fetch the materials and start one of my own! ( Suggested by coNstantine2530 and Featured by UnicornReality )

Thank you for this tutorial! My writer's club is selling books of great pieces, and this will certainly be a cheaper way to do it!
