The Final Step

I have reached the final step of my TriangleLove book: binding. I got a small batch of my new little books printed up for the first time yesterday, and they’re quite cute! The cover is a soft blue cardstock, and the inside pages are a nice thick white paper.

I decided to do a quick pamphlet stitch to bind these books because the books are just the right size and weight for it. I learned this stitch back in a high school bookmaking class, and it’s easy as pie and has served me in so many ways since then. I got my linen thread out, and a very short time later had a nice little collection of bound books to show for my work.

It is always exciting to see a project in its final form—after the drawings, scannings, computer work, binding and such—and I’m really excited to share them with you. I wanted to post them up for sale in my shop today, but the weather is so dull and gray that I’m going to wait until tomorrow to see if the sun will shine and give me some good light for the photographs.

So, stay tuned for more pictures tomorrow, and the chance to snatch up your very own little TriangleLove book!

    They look great! I can’t wait to see some sneak peek pages (hint hint). . . .

    Wonderful books. I handmade the first collection of poems that my wife published. It took a while to make 25 copies, but they sold. We did something a bit easier for the second printing!
