CUSTOM BOOK of BOOKS | hand-bound example 2017

I designed and made this delightfully elaborate book for the sixth birthday of a friend's granddaughter. It has seven pamphlet-stitched books (each with a different picture of her granddaughter, from the preceding year, and a related quote of her five-year-old wisdom on the back); seven pochettes, each with a letter from her name and one with a heart, hand-punched (so the book inside can be seen); and each envelope is tacket-bound to make a hand-bound book-of-books. The finished book is approximately 6x6". It was great fun and a great success!

TACKET BINDING is a form of exposed binding with each folio sewn directly onto the spine with visible stitching.

POCHETTE in this context is a petal-folded envelope

PAMPHLET STITCH is the simplest method of binding a single-signature book.
