Bookbinding

Filed Under…

I made this little sketchbook recently. It is a seven section casebound book, with tea stained canvas coverered boards. On the front is a metal frame (like on a filing cabinet) with a degraded filing card in the slot.

The endpapers are from an old map of the moon, simply for the fact that I liked it and thought it would provide an odd, retro feel to the book:

The frame isn’t actually screwed on – I sawed off the heads of the screws and glued the lot into place…
