Soft Cover Leather Bound Books
Want to make leather bound books but are intimidated or lack experience? No previous experience in bookbinding or leather working is needed to create a beautiful soft leather bound book in a weekend. Add surface design to the leather covers using linoleum block cuts to create texture, image and color. Decorative endpapers and a deckled edge text block will complete the aesthetic of the book. By the Sunday afternoon, you will have made one or two fully designed hand-bound leather books.
Deadline to register: One week before the class starts.
