In week 3 of my bookbinding evening class we made paperback notebooks and sketchbooks using the pamphlet stitch with both one signature, and two. Here's some I made earlier:
And here are the books participants made during the workshop:
We covered some new terminology, including sheets, folios and signatures, and we we also looked at how the Pamphlet Stitch can be combined with bindings from Week 1, Folded Forms.
Stitching through the fold of each signature will hopefully prepare us for the next two weeks' work on the Longstitch binding, where participants can choose leather or vegan synthetic PU to make a Medieval journal or sketchbook. Exciting!
If these blog posts have inspired you to want to make books, you can join me on my Autumn evening class which starts in September at Artisan Community Art Studio in Moordown, Dorset and costs £80 for 6 weeks, or email me if you'd like to be notified when I start offering PDF tutorials for sale - my summer project is to turn my class worksheets in to downloadable instructions so you can learn at your own pace, in your own home, wherever you are.
