Handbound Books

Last quarter I took a bookmaking class taught by Graham Young. Learning to hand bind books is a big plus. The learning process definitely took some time but now I can add this to my skillset.

Tape Stitch Bind

This book was made in Print Production class. The body copy was formatted in InDesign and the cover was designed in Photoshop. It was on display at the Art Institute’s gallery. The cover shows signs of some wear but the binding is still intact.

  1. I used the Japanese Stab Bind for my portfolio book. It turned out really well and created a sturdy but beautiful book that didn’t fall apart of multiple reviews. When I have more time, I’d like to do more books like that…so much fun.
