Well, there are enough of them I suppose I can devote a category to them.

I did a lot of reading last night in Bookbinding for Book Artists, and learned quite a few neat tricks for binding. It has been a most excellent book on the subject, very helpful and detailed, with many illustrations and pictures. I'm confident in being able to do my first quarter bound leather book before the end of next week. I got the idea for my book press from it as well. It was very simple to make, and only cost me about $25.

This book I'm working on is on track for the nicest looking one I've made yet, and I've made a couple I was really proud of!
