I've mentioned once or twice that I'm taking a bookbinding class this semester. At least I think I mentioned it. If not - Hey guys! I'm taking bookbinding this semester! I bring this up because today was the first day where we did anything that resembles binding. Up to this point there has been a lot of folding paper, and gluing paper together, and then more folding, and then occasionally some sewing. Today we put all of these skills together and make a pamphlet/book that definitely resembles journals I've bought at target.
Since this is a book blog, and I am kind of making books I figured I'd post a few pictures.
Hey...That looks like a book, go figure!
In class we've spent a lot of time folding pages and making folios. This is what they look like
The inside cover. Not very interesting, but I had to glue it together so I think it's important.
The whole cover. I really love the blue/green color of the spine.
In other school news, tomorrow we actually start talking about Sorcerer's Stone in my Harry Potter class. Up till this point we've been talking about a hero's journey and fairytales.
Have to go take brownies out of the oven! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
