Coptic Bound Book

I have made a casebound book before and I'm eager to try new methods of book layout.


This was a fun class! I want to make a sketchbook, so I  used Mohawk 80 lb text for the interior (cutting it to size was a pain-- the sheets are 24" by 37" or so). The cover is book cloth from the craft store, and the waxed linen thread is from the same. The endpapers are hand-marbled by me.




Unfortunately the book is a little bit chatty; I must have pulled the thread too tightly. After a couple nights with twenty pounds of books resting on top of it, though, you can't really tell.



I'm excited to continue growing my bookmaking experience.
