Finished.


Tonight I finished these two notebooks at my bookbinding course. I was thinking of making a lot of these for presents. The folding and sewing I like. But the glueing sucks. It took me all night just to finish these two covers! It wasn't a good night. I mean they turned out ok, but it was like my hand eye co-ordination wasn't working. So I may have to rethink my presents plan. Hmmm. And on that note, I need to give my eyes a rest so night night. x

These book look beautiful, I especially like the paper on the right hand one, lovely and swirly! I too have a problem with gluing, it gets everywhere doesn't it! If you like the folding and sewing (like me!) then I suggest just folding and sewing! (perhaps this is a bad attitude but you've got to reconise your strenghts right?!)
I'll see if I can dig anything out for you, no glue covers or something...

these are great! My favorite is the one on the left. Nice job.

You mentioned something awhile ago about a lomography option on photoshop? Is it like a button or something that makes things look like they're a lomo photo? How cool! I don't have photoshop though :( My computer is not very up-to-date.

Hi, love the look of your work. I am also in Christchurch and have been wanting to find a course on bookbinding for ages. Please let me know where the course you are doing is held.

Thanks,
Alistair
