Encasing Structure's Content

This is a weekly blog that I have created with the sole purpose of creating a hand bound book once a month. I will be showing the entire process from start to finish. Although I would appreciate some mention of credit, please feel free to use and share any information found on this blog. The creative process rarely happens in a vacuum.

April 4, 2016 - Update and Finished Book

Hello Everyone,

Wow!  I can't believe my last post was in August.  Time has flown by!  Unfortunately not for pleasant experiences.  We had a bit of a family crisis that required all my attention, so unfortunately I needed to stop blogging for a while.  But hopefully, that is behind us now and I can get back to work.

I was able to finish the Saints Book.  If you recall, I had received some Saint of the Day cards from a friend and wanted to put them in a book.  I had shown how the how-to on the origami fold pages and was getting ready to show how I bound them and was going to use the Secret Belgium Binding as the cover.

Long story short, I did get the pages bound, but was not able to blog at the time, and I after I had created the Secret Belgium Binding cover I didn't think it was a good fit for this book, so I went with just a simple decorative cover.

Here's the finished book:

I apologize for not being able to share with everyone the process that got me to the finished product, but I have decided it would just be best to move forward with my book making and return to my regular schedule of posting.

So next week will be week 1 - Introduction, with the new book form being a Pivoting Panel Book that I believe was originally created by Hedi Kyle.

Till then,
Happy Book Binding!
