Angela James, The Handmade Book (Story Publishing, 2000)

A thin, information-packed craft volume, The Handmade Book contains a number of projects for those who'd like to (as you can probably guess from the title) make their own books. Everything is spelled out, and the text is lavishly illustrated to give you extra guidance. Note that we're not talking “regular”-shaped books here, but all sorts of interesting ideas, some of which might not fit on your bookshelves. Great ideas to be had. ****
A simpler approach great for beginners. Too bad I never have time (nor the workshop) to work from it.
