Your book is lovely.  I'm so impressed with book binding.  I have a few library books on the subject - but it looks too dificult.  You've done a great job, never would have thought this was your second book.

That's your 2nd book?! You're extremely talented...I'd buy that book in a split second, it looks really quite lovely. I especially enjoy the bead detail you've added - gives it that extra something special!

Any tips for bookbinding?

Wow Smiley!.  It looks so good.  I can't believe it's just your second one.  What got you interested in journal making?

Thanks Cheesy I was actually planning to sell books once I get the hang of it and I was wondering how much you would pay for it?

Hmm... tips? I just make sure everything is tight and secure with a lot of PVA glue Tongue

Thank you! I think craftster itself got me interested in bookbinding. Cheesy But I always loved DIY stuff even as a kid and I had tons of books Cheesy

Your book is beautiful. Did you sew the signatures together or just glue them?

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.
