I had so much fun making these book structures.
Book 1 - I started with a simple Accordian with tunnel A5 size
Book 2 - Next something I found on the Internet, a Victorian puzzle purse but made from paper. The idea is you write something in side then the recipient has to work out how it fold together again, easy once you know how.
Book 3 - A5 size
Book 4 - Origami book - made from A4 paper printed with lettering design from previous chapter and sprayed with walnut ink to give aged look. Cover is piece of painted nappy liner ironed to cotton fabric and machine stitched. Held together with machine made cord.
Book 5 - concertina book with signatures A5 size.
Book 6 - A6 size.
Book 7 - postcard size.
Book 8 - Piano hinge with skewers
Book 9 - Star book
I've included these Doodle books from Lynda Monks online workshop as they show how to sew signatures into an outer cover.
Doodle book 1
Doodle book 2 - I used watercolour paper for the signatures.
