DIY Bookbinding

Book description

Magazines aren’t really built to last, and in the rush to digital delivery, some folks might argue that they're all but obsolete anyway. But for makers who work with their hands and bibliophiles who still appreciate the physical artifact of the written word, there will always be something special about print. If you're one of these stubborn luddites, you might just want your library of magazines to last. You might even want your digital content to take on new life as an aesthetic object that survives as a dead-tree edition. When you’ve completed this 32-page project (when printed, it's an even two 16-page signatures), you’ll have a durable, attractive hardcover copy of this booklet (or your favorite magazine, in the event that the two are not one and the same) that will last forever and lie flat, allowing future generations to carry on the craft and tradition of preserving bona-fide pieces of printed matter.
