This book is packed with dozens of fascinating ideas how you can create your own books. Designs offer styles in leather and cloth, as well as unique bindings such as shells or pieces of wood. This is a great way to express your creativity in a truly unique gift.

This book has a nice variety of projects, some made from scratch, some repurposed old books, even one made from a seashell. I've read a bunch of bookmaking books but this one has a few stitching patterns that I hadn't seen before so that's nice. It also has a handful of projects that are related but not actual books, such as a flower press and bookmarks.

Oh the things I would do if I had the time! I really loved the little ideas in this book. I think I will rediscover it in about 20 years when I can have a new hobby!!
