Welcome to my Bookbinding Blog

The making of books, the teaching of bookbinding and the association with other bookbinders and book artists has become the focus and passion of my life. Bookbinding has many aspects and we debate a lot about the precise definitions of various aspects but, working with our hands within this discipline, challenging our skills and creativity is intriguing, frustrating and exciting.

Danyah’s printed and bound cook book

These series of images are of a book I had the pleasure of binding for a delightful client. Danyah has collated, written and illustrated recipes from friends and family. These recipes were beautifully type set in a font like an old typewriter, printed and then we chose colours and details to bind this special book. It is a wedding gift. What a lucky recipient.

I was able to arrange for the printing to be done then we set about designing the colours and papers to use and  I set about bounding the book. It is a single section binding and is covered in a rich, dark mauve material, one of our new bookcloths. Finished with a leather label and velvet marker. We also had very suitable paper for the endpapers, these feature old kitchen utencils. To add a richness some of our decorative papers were inserted.

It certainly is a unique and very beautiful book.

Unfortunately I did not have time to read the recipes, a quick glance was sufficient to know that they were fantastic.

Whey I say our papers and bookcloths I am referring to my retail business – Amazing Paper (www.amazingpaper.com.au)
