Whether you're altering a pre-made book or creating your own, here you'll find both the instruction and the inspiration to get it done. In addition to learning mixed-media techniques--such as how to age paper, transfer images and make your own monoprints--you'll be given step-by-step instruction for numerous book structures including:

Single-fold and bi-fold books Simple and extended accordions Perfect bindings Side-sewn books Single- and multiple-signature books Boxes Unbound collections
