Adventures in Bookbinding

Hand Crafting Mixed-Media Books

Learn to take bookbinding far beyond its traditional boundaries using crafts such as quilting, jewelry making, and polymer clay. Adventures in Bookbinding is filled with illustrated step-by-step instructions that demonstrate how to construct books and bindings with an intriguingly diverse range of materials.

What makes Adventures in Bookbinding especially unique is that each project — be it a needle-felted journal, a quilted workbook, or a polymer clay diary — is presented in "shortcut" and "master" versions geared to the reader's level of experience.

Shortcut versions of a project are great for those who like the look of a particular craft but want a quick way to get there, while master versions are for those who want to complete a piece from start to finish. The shortcut version of the quilted book, for example, uses a cut-up vintage quilt for the cover, whereas the master version uses a custom-quilted cover.

If you enjoy collaboration, Adventures in Bookbinding is also a wonderful source of inspiration. Throughout its pages, author Jeannine Stein suggests ways to combine your skills with other crafters — a master quilter, for example — to explore shared creative endeavors.

Jeannine Stein has been making books for more than fifteen years. In addition to teaching bookbinding, she is an award-winning journalist who has written extensively about paper crafts, artists' books, scrapbooking, rubber stamping, and letterpress.
