Coptic BookbindingTuesday, January 26, 2016
I don't often aspire to make my own drawing materials, but I took a class in coptic bookbinding at TechShop San Jose a few weeks ago because I had a coupon. It's a great way to make lie-flat sketchbooks. There were just two of us in the class. We were provided precut paper and MDF covers and learned how to sew waxed thread across the signatures to create this secure binding.
I liked learning the technique and can see the advantage of using my own mix of papers, but I'll probably leave the sketchbook-making to the pros.
How about you? Have you ever made your own sketchbook?
