This is a hugely practical book with lots of photos and easy to follow instructions that ensure success for even the novice book binder. If you are looking for a book that offers basic bindings along with more off beat structures, artistic creations and objects that are as beautiful as they are practical this is the book. It will show you, step by step, how to make keepsakes that will be treasured for years to come. A highly recommended book!
