My First Book - Book No. 0001

With the 2 papers I'd produced, it was time to try a book. I used 2 thicker sheets of the Paper No. 0001 for each of the 5 signatures, and used a folded sheet of Paper No. 0002 for both the covers. Sewn coptic stitch, and with a thin strip of hand painted Japanese Washi paper as a front label, i ended up with this as a first attempt.

Book No. 0001 4x6 in (10x15 cm)

It's so good that you made this complete book from 'scratch' - your own handmade papers for the pages and covers - well done it's really lovely!

Ah, a coptic! These are my fave, totally addictive. Welcome to UKPA, your're in the right place! Love the banknote pamphlet-bound books too.

Thanks Lubna. Technically, this is my second book, as i made a std hardbound book from a kit last year, but i've mislaid it!
