Book Binding!

Okay so todays lecture was the best ever! We had a book binder come in and we made 5 books! This has really inspired me (have purchased 2 new books already to help me!) and I have been watching tutorials already on youtube to see how other books are made and I’m just amazed! I had no idea it could be so fun. I have quickly had a look at some images of handmade books online and these are the designs I hope to make within the next few weeks:
