The is a brillient book for someone making a book for the first time, you will be surprised at how addictive bookbinding is and by the time you have made a few of the projects shown you will be well on your way in the interesting world of bookbinding.
A great boook for the first time binder, no prior knowledge of the subject is required.
It has detailed instructions for making several basic types of books, as well as some more complex and decorative projects. In a couple of days since getting the book I've made a proper case bound book with sewn folios, an accordion book and a nice little one sheet book with an origami envelope.
Every stage of each set of instructions is fully and helpfully illustrated, but its most annoying feature is that every step is also spelled out in complete sentences padding the text out to no great purpose.
The content of some of the projects may also be a bit touchy feely for the average brit, but I have quickly found myself falling into the sentimental memory syndrome too - so be warned.
The instructions are clear, from the preparation to the end result, with approximate times taken to make each book, and the photos are very inspirational.
A few projects might look daunting for a beginner, but are achievable with care and patience.
I would recommend this book.
