Although this sounds a bit violent, it is a very beautiful technique with over 2000 different variations in Japanese Binding, it is a great starting point to bookbinding and a useful style to use for sketchbooks and photo albums.
During this class you will:
• Create 5 hard cover with book board and buckram
