I read somewhere that you can reduce static cling if you wipe your paper with a dryer sheet before stamping.

themoonisout & amyshrugged:  Thanks for the nice comments.

amyshrugged:  Yes, I bound this book last week, and wooden spines do not seem too hard.  A friend of mine found the wood for free as scrap from a store.  She used a band saw to cut it to the right size for me, though you could also do it by hand.  I used her drill press to drill the holes, but I think I can do the same with my hand held Dremel.  You can also substitute leather or cardstock instead of wood for the spine.  I am cutting up a file folder for a spine for my current bookbinding project.

I have a book about handmade books in which one artist explains how she makes books from paper and a bone folding tool. That's it. Everything is held together by her folding technique.

I totally forgot about limp parchment bookbinding - the medieval paperback   Grin  The pages are sewn to the spine, but the cover is a tougher piece of paper that is folded to size  Absolutely no glue involved.  Would this be similar to what you are looking for?

I second the recommendation for Keith Smith's books.  I just bought Non-Adhesive Binding Volume III: Exposed Spine Sewings, and I love it.  I got into bookbinding through classes in the Society for Creative Anachronism, so most of my bookbinding interest lies in techniques used before the 17th Century, and Volume III has instructions for several of these stitching methods.

As for not using glue on your covers, how about using wood covers?  It can be carved, painted, stained, burned, etc. and then stitched to the bookblock.

What a cool swap idea.  This is fun like nobody's business!  I have PM'd JazzyBee with my request to get involved in all this fun, so here is my wish list   Grin

1.  A couple of kanzashi flowers like those in this tutorial:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24944.0  Any color combination would be great, but it would be really super if they were in my old school colors of purple and white.

2. An Altoid tin covered in polymer clay, maybe with a Celtic design of some kind.

3.  A mini portrait of one of my dogs.  Hey, I know this is a huge request, so I will love you forever if someone actually does this.  It can be just a little doodle, sketch, charcoal, crayon, paint, whatever of one of my mutts.  Realistic or way out funky crazy colored caricature.  I have an Australian cattle dog and a sheltie,  I can provide pictures for inspiration.  Man, do I have pictures of those dogs....
  Woohoo!  I got picked - Thank You!  Grin

Wow, spaz2phreek, that pendant is cool!  Not having taken any jewelry classes, I have no idea of how you did that.  Very impressive.  I am in awe....

Oh I know!  "Sometimes it seems like the whole world wants a piece of me.  Can't I just get a day off for myself?"

What a hoot!  That might even get you some points with the instructor  Cheesy  But what I want to know is what did Buddha/Jesus/Ganesh just say to elicit Freud's trademark comment?  If we only knew....

Just a quick note as I don't have much time atm: I got my package and I love it! Thanks, Guin! PS. the scarf is supposed to be a scarflet; the flowers fasten it. It's supposed to be a posy to protect you from the plague. Smiley

Hahaha!  If only such things worked.  The scarflet sounds wonderful, and I cannot wait to see the plague-fighting posy!
