Book Binding

via Instagram http://ift.tt/2duR94T

I took another class at Perennial last night, this time a leather bound book. It was my first time doing any book binding and it was really fun and surprisingly easier than expected. Like all Perennial classes we used all reclaimed/recycled materials. The leather was from old jackets, pants or scraps and the pages was letterhead that was headed to the landfill.

I just need to figure out how I want to fashion a closure for my book. The leather I had left over from my scrap wasn't long enough to make a simple tie closure, so I wanted to take some time and look at some examples of different methods before I just threw something on there. I will post a follow up picture when I get it added.

Thanks Perennial for another fun class!
