mostly about making books - blank and otherwise - reading books and keeping a reading diary

Janice - Your books are wonderful!! Can you direct me to any sources of instruction so I can make some too? :^)
Janet - my favorite book about bookbinding is Keith Smith's Non-Adhesive Binding. I mentioned on this blog, but I wouldn't recommend it for beginners. Shereen LaPlantz' Cover to Cover is much easier to follow - but more about art books than functional books.Gwen Diehn, in her The Decorated Journal has a section on making books - both easy and functional. I think this would be a good starting point.And Gwen posted instructions at EDM for her version of piano hinge - I'm going to try it later this week. It's a little different and looks to be quite quick and easy.
