I have long had a love affair with the art of book binding and over the years I've once or twice dabbled with very simple book binding techniques. Recently I decided I needed a little sketch book for one of my projects so I decided to make my own.
This is a folded paper technique called Blizzard Binding and although fairly simple it's important to be very accurate with the folding - not so easy with big clumpy hands like mine, but I eventually ended up with a little book I was pleased with!
I decorated the front with pieces of hand-made silk paper, pressed Ginkgo leaves and copper foil.
As you can see below each page spread is one sheet of A6 Khadi paper folded in half and held in place at either end by the little folded triangles that flip open and closed - this means you can remove pages to work on, change pages around or replace them as required.
