Cover to Cover by Shereen LaPlantz

by Wendy J. Woudstra   

 
 


RATED:

Pros 
•  Easy-to-follow instructions
•  Lots of photographs and instructional sketches
•  Galleries of idea-inspiring projects

Cons 
•  No lay-flat binding -- you'll have to crease the spine while you work
•  Most projects usuitable for experienced bookmakers

While most of the projects included in "Cover to Cover" are simplistic, the galleries show book ideas that are extraordinary in every respect, and could inspire even experienced bookbinders.

While my favorite books to create are stitched, I enjoyed the many varieties of folded books demonstrated, and was even inspired to try a few of my own.

"Cover to Cover" is a fantastic place to start if you are interested in book making. It's relatively inexpensive, and you'll find yourself looking through it for inspiration long after you've mastered the techniques it teaches.

The Bottom Line -

This is one of the best books available for beginners looking to create some interesting book and journal making projects. If you're looking at bookmaking as a hobby, start here!
