An increasingly popular craft trend receives awe-inspiring treatment by a major artist. Alisa Golden ( Creating Handmade Books ) has created a spectacular guide sure to enlighten both beginners and more advanced students. She provides invaluable instruction on structure--which is where newcomers will focus their energies first--as well as design and content, for those who already have some experience. From measuring and scoring to folding and cutting, from tools for bookbinding to useful media for writing and image-making, there's a rich store of information on the craft--and a wonderfully wide range of projects, too. Make accordion and flag books, including miniature volumes; side bindings, with cross stitching or laced edges; sewn signatures; portfolios; pop-ups; and other creative styles.
