Learn how to bind a hardback book

denim covered notebook

Now you can make and bind your own hardback book, in exactly the same way that bookbinders have been doing it for generations. You can make gorgeous birthday presents or Christmas presents, using any spare blank or printed paper you have, some old cardboard and almost any left over fabric or pieces of leather. You could make a lovely holiday book, or your own personalised diary or special birthday book. If you print out a header and footer on the pages before you bind them, then you really will have a personalised book. handmade notebook bound in brown material This project shows you the basics, but after you have made your first book, you might want to experiment a bit. Why not bind in different types of paper, tissue paper or tracing paper, or perhaps dark, rich coloured or black paper to make a lovely old fashioned photograph album or scrap book.
. . . For the cover you can use almost any material. The book shown here was covered using fabric from an old pair of lightweight trousers, but you could use specially bought fabric, leather from an old coat or old hand bag, felt, curtains, old cushion covers or even denim from a pair of old jeans.
. . . Because this is your book, you can decorate it exactly how you want. For example, Josie made her book cover from denim and then glued one of the jeans pockets on to the front of the book to keep her pens and pencils in.
. . . Your full, How-to-Bind a Book instructions are available in both A4 and US Letter format PDFs and can be easily downloaded by just clicking on the size required below. As well as the instructions you might need some marbled or patterned lining paper to finish off the inside cover of your book. You can buy really nice marbled paper, of course you can make your own (that is another story), use some spare wrapping paper or you can printout the marbled lining paper below. Click on the size you need and you'll download a large jpeg of the marbled lining paper image which you can then print out. Note, make sure the printer is printing the full size image (and minimise margins), and then cut the small white border off before you use it.

Audrey2's Book Binding
Posted by Audrey2 - A little book of everything, where I now store all of my knowledge and wisdom. Anything I learn is entered. I hope that someday I shall be able to look up anything that I need to know ever. The only problem when making it was the complete lack of glue. So the stages needing glue were quite difficult to accomplish.Spacer
jedififer's Book Binding
Posted by jedififer - This is my book. I used runes to name the front. I used felt and some heat bond instead of the glue for the cover, iit was a little easier that way, for me any ways. For the inside "cover" I used blue constuction paper. I have also chosen to show u a few things I have put in the book so far.Spacer

bitwit's Book Binding
Posted by bitwit - A Harry Potter bok - AFTER. We wanted our Harry Potter books to look like something out of the Hogwarts library, so a custom bookbinding project was a perfect Halloween project. The impression of cords across the spine are simply hot melt glue on the back of paper softened with a spray mister. The distressing was simple, a little diluted ink in a spray mister followed by some translucent clear spray paint.Spacer
