Bookbinding

I've made a handful of sketchbooks over the last year using some book binding techniques I picked up in a course I took years ago.  Since then, I've played around with all sorts of different ways to finish off these books.  I love giving out handmade gifts when I can and these make wonderful presents.

 For this sketchbook I used my own digitally illustrated image to grace the cover.

 A few months of wear and tear, this sketchbook lives in my purse.
