Paola Rosati: BOOKBINDING BASICS It is called Basic, but it is a very thorough Basic, everything from pamphlet stitched notebooks to a half cloth and paper journal with a rounded spine. All the basics are covered thoroughly, from cutting, folding, and measuring to gluing, sawing, and sewing on tapes. She shows how to make a sewing frame from a 4-legged stool, and how to use it. She also shows how to make books without a sewing frame, such as using nails to bind together loose sheets. One the most interesting projects is a book made of a series of publications (each is a multi-paged, stapled together publication). The sewing technique allows the finished book to open well and lay flat and it can either use the publicationís cover or a cloth and paper cover can be attached.
