My second handbound book – this time I used old cardboard as cover and printer paper for the sheets. For the design of the cover I colored strong brown paper with acrylic paint. The binding is made with coptic stitch – very easy, you can find the instruction on many sites in the www! It ist much faster than the first stitch I tried, too, and it looks much better.
Because I will carry this notebook with me all the time, I wrapped the covers in self-adhesive foil, so that it can not get dirty.
