by Shereen LaPlantz
The guide begins with instructions for a simple accordion-fold book. Successive projects build on methods readers have already mastered and introduce new skills, including the pamphlet stitch, ideal for photo albums and scrapbooks; tacket binding, the versatile stitch of medieval Europe; and the Coptic stitch, employed by Christians of ancient Egypt. A full-color photo gallery, with contributions from more than 60 artists, offers further inspiration for enhancing and personalizing projects by using alphabets, bestiaries, botanical illustrations, and other designs. The author includes a glossary of terms as well as information on materials and tools.
Discovered another of Shereen LaPlantz's books on my shelves when I was reshelving my library today. Cover to Cover (2000) was one of the books that got me going on bookmaking when I first tried it. Another one by her that is well worth looking into for both the art and the instruction.
