I've just found some very good reference material on the subject at this site.

http://www.bookbinding.com/

I'm not currently thinking of binding a book, but the methods should be useful for the making of suitalbly period looking covers for all sorts of projects.

Oooh - that looks like a very interesting and useful resource, Dr Q!

But I don't need another hobby! I shall not be tempted to learn any form of bookbinding beyond doing metal ringbound books.

Although this is tempting to do:

^^I tried my hand at it a while back.  Not the greatest job, but satisfactory for the target style.  Still haven't figured out what to put on the pages.

Book binding is an enjoyable hobby, I have made one from scratch (though not steampunk themed, something rather quite more personal and secretive). At the moment I am rebinding an old book, but this will not be themed as followed either, for the norse theme fits better on the younger Edda.

Bookbinding isn't particularily difficult, but one needs to be precise and focused.

Bookbinding is really useful for an artist... I totally waste a lot of paper, so why not try and make left over paper into books?
thanks for the useful links!

I also recently found this excellent link:


http://www.sfu.ca/~achanne/projects/bookbinding/


It shows the book-making process step-by-step, and seems to lead to very good-looking books.

It seems like a rather good guide, though I use a rather different technique, this is my newest project so far:



Made it today at random.
