Next up I put the block of paper in my binding press with the clips still attached. If you want to make your own bookbinding press, I have a full Instructables about it here.

So I hunted around and ordered some A5 copier paper from Amazon. At some point, I really want to make my own paper, but for this project, I wanted to keep it simple. I got out about 50 sheets of paper. I found this gave a good thickness of the book, without being over thick. If this was to live on a desk or something I would probably go much thicker, but as I carry it around didn’t want it too thick! I tamped the pieces down on all sides to make sure the block was perfectly even. And use some binding clips to temporarily hold it together.

Practicing my coptic stitch. Tension is still difficult, but I am chuffed. #bookmaking #copticbookbinding

My first thought was, why by A5 paper when you can just cut it down using a paper guillotine. I tried this. And failed. None of the paper lined up nicely, it just didn’t work out well for me. If you have a better guillotine than me it might be fine!

I started with some standard copier or printer paper. I didn’t want this notebook to be too big and decided that A5 would be perfect for me. I never wanted to carry around in my pocket (in which case I would make it A6 or similar), but instead, it would live in my backpack which comes everywhere with me anyway.

PART 1 | THE BOOKS

I had the amazing privilege to be a part of an artisan book binding workshop, where we learned the painstaking art of traditional kettlestitch binding and covering. I also wrote and illustrated an entire second book. The process was long and frustrating, but incredibly rewarding. As part of my illustration process, I integrated several types of embroidery styles.
Let me know what you think!

In this next series of photos I’ll show how to make a perfect bound notebook. I wanted a small paperback notebook and using my bookbinding press, I used an old classic car manual as a custom DIY notebook cover and the perfect binding method using PVA Glue for the spine of the book.

Forwarding at real speed ! Pretty intense, isn't it ?
Cleaning the deckle edges with my board shear, because in fine binding we try to keep the book at its largest, so it cannot be said "short in margins" (compared to an untouched exemplary) at the end of the process.
You can see how thin are the scraps, and that sometimes nothing is cut... Also, i turn the sections to cut a second time - it's because those sections are a bit thick, and so it's possible that paper isn't touch by the blade the first time.
I'll let you enjoy the soft rythm that step generates... section, paper-holder, blade... section, paper-holder, blade... section, paper-holder, blade... Until the blade squeaks - I should grease it !
.
La plaçure à vitesse réelle ! Plutôt intense, n'est-ce pas ?
Ébarbage des témoins à la cisaille, parce qu'en reliure très soignée on tente de garder le livre au plus large, pour qu'on ne puisse pas dire de lui qu'il est "court en marges" (comparé à un exemplaire broché) à la fin du processus.
Vous pouvez voir comme les chutes sont fines, et aussi que parfois rien n'est coupé... Il arrive aussi que je retourne le cahier pour couper une seconde fois - c'est que ces cahiers sont un peu épais, et il est possible dans ce cas qu'ils ne soient pas correctement touchés par la lame la première fois.
Je vous laisse profiter du doux rythme engendré par cette étape... cahier, presse-papier, lame... cahier, presse-papier, lame... cahier, presse-papier, lame... Jusqu'à ce que la lame couine - il faut que je la graisse !
