This is my first try in bookmaking. Well, actually my second, my first book was a wrinkled glued mess with a covered spine, that wouldn't open and close properly. I then decided that I don't really need a covered spine and that Coptic stitches add a nice decorative touch.

These are small books, more like notebooks really, about the size of my hand. They each have about 5 signatures with three folded pieces of paper per signature. I used plain white printer paper for the insides.
