This book took many hours to make. These were some of the steps in its creation:
– the paper for the book block is folded in half and then arranged in sections
– the sections are pierced and sewn with linen thread on tapes
– the end papers are made and sewn onto the book block
– the book block is rounded and backed in a laying press
– the spine of the book block is lined with a hollow and the endbands are added
– the boards are cut from greyboard and the mull and tapes are glued onto the boards
– the leather is cut to size and pared and edge-pared by hand
– paste is applied to the leather and the spine is covered
– the joints are set and the cap is formed
– the rest of the boards are covered in the book cloth
– the endpapers are glued down
– the book is left in the press and voilà, it is ready!

Thanks for looking at my notebooks and don’t forget that I can make books to your own specifications and personalise the covers – just get in touch for a quote. (Please note that I can’t personalise books that have already been made – it is an integral part of making the book from scratch.)
