Japanese Bound and Other Simple Books with Fran Phillips

1800 House Japanese Bound and Simple Books

These small books and albums are ideal as sketch books, recipe collections, poetry, and travel or daily journals. Good for photo albums, too. We’ll be making softcover books with fancy paper covers and edge-stitched detail. (Needleworkers, take note!) An accessible form of binding using readily available tools, no book press needed.

Take this class as a companion class to Handpainted Papers for Boxes & Books.


Maximum class size: 10
