My first go at bookbinding multiple signatures

I’m so excited!!! I did my first proper bookbinding for a junk journal with multiple signatures. It’s so much easier and quicker than I thought and I love how it looks.

I used a biscuit box for the cover and random scrap papers for the signatures just to experiment.

This is how it turned out:

I love it! It looks like a proper book and full of lots of pages to journal on.

One of the biggest limitations to the spiral bound journals was that you couldn’t fit many pages in it. But these handbound journals have lots of pages with lots of room to decorate and add ephemera and photos.

I’m definitely hooked on bookbinding now and will bookbind all journals from now on.

  1. That looks wonderful!

    You know, I have a friend who is a book binder? He works in a library, doing book conservation and other things, but also teaches (part time) bookbinding at an art school and has written chapters for textbooks on the subject.
