Narrator: Tabitha of The Pairabirds
As stated yesterday, I am eagerly awaiting something to arrive in my mailbox. To keep my mind off of the waiting, I decided to try my hand at bookbinding. I've bound books by sewing a signature together, but I never tried the "gluing the pages together" technique. I spent most of Sunday surfing the Internet on binding tutorials (Google to the rescue).
I used some of my prints and typing paper for this first one. The things I learned:
- cut the paper a little smaller than the covers (d'oh!)
- twelve year old glue does not hold its consistency
- magazine pages smear
Overall, I'm pretty happy with my first try. Next time, though, I'll use PVA glue. Or, at least glue that is not more than a decade old.
