CLASS DESCRIPTION

In this class, you'll learn how to design and produce a pocket notebook series by hand. By the end, you'll have a group of 6–12 notebooks for personal use or to gift to friends throughout the year! We'll begin with the basics of making a saddle-stitched book—sewn or stapled. Then, we'll explore numerous ideas for designing your custom cover series using analogue graphics and typography. Next, we'll walk through sizing, trimming and binding. Lastly, we'll discuss finishing touches and ideas for packaging them for gifting.
