What I made over Thanksgiving vacation

These little coptic-bound blank books are the fruits of my Make Something Day. The inner pages are simply Canson drawing paper; the covers are screen-printed Japanese paper over bookbinder’s board. It’s all sewn together with linen thread.

I learned a few different bookbinding techniques in the class I took in college, but coptic is the one I like most. The placement of the stitching is totally up to you, and it allows the book to lay flat when it’s open, perfect for sketchbooks.

What did you make?
