We do enjoy books about making books, and we thought we’d share with you a couple of our favourites.
Indie Publishing: How to Design and Produce Your Own Book, is a great how-to manual, detailing everything to do with publishing your own book, from design through to distribution. Written by Ellen Lupton, it’s published by Princeton Architectural Press.
A nice little guide to making books by hand is How to Make Books by Esther K Smith, published by Purgatory Pie Press. Using basic ‘fold, cut and stitch’ techniques, this book inspires one to get out the paper and scissors to make simple books.
For other DIY sites for book-making, see an extensive list over at Instructables.
