I did it again!
This one will be a gift to all my library programs coworkers at our meeting tomorrow (hopefully I finish binding all of them by then)… I’ve got 2 of 9 down so far.
I took all photos that appear int he book during our RV trip in 2018-2019, wrote about each place we visited on a blog, then adapted some of the posts to include them in the book. I also created some poems to go along with some of the photos.
I printed all pages at home, then used @Edel’s wonderful video to learn how to bind the book.
This time I decided to go the paperback route to save time, so I only sewed for the binding—no glue.
I sewed the signatures together, then to each other, and finally I sewed the paperback cover onto all signatures (I trimmed the signatures a bit so the 8.5 x 11 cardstock would easily wrap around them).
I did modify the signature binding just a tad. I sewed right through every signature as I bound each together, as the paper was thin enough to make this easier.
Finally, I used some colourful duct tape to hide the sewing on the cover, as well as to just make the cover prettier.
Thanks for looking!
