In this bookbinding class, we will be crafting custom pocket sized notebooks. Pocket sized notebooks are small, easy to carry and easy to make notebooks that are great for everyday use. We will review commercial examples you may see at stores, then review the materials and tools needed to craft our own notebooks. All materials for this project can be found around the house, so you will not need to purchase or find any specialty materials.
Don't worry if you don't think you're a crafty person or have never tried bookbinding. This course is perfect for any experience level!
My name is Caleb Sylvest, I’m a guy that likes to make things. I am a Designer & Developer living and working in Dallas, TX. To me design is a way of life and I like to incorporate good design in everything I do.
A hobby of mine is hands-on bookbinding. I love the process of taking everyday items (paper, glue, tape) and crafting them into a functional, beautiful book. I have spent years studying the art of making books and have learned many techniques, including perfect bound, pamphlet, coptic, japanese stab stitching and more. I have made books to sell, give as gifts, for personal use, and for decorative display.
Why buy something when I can make it myself?
