Making a book
You' ll be taught how to make and tie a book using the basic "Japanese binder technique", in which a book is held together by a series. When you want to know how to tie a book, one of the simplest methods is to make it in a book. Here is a picture of the binding:
This is the inner shell: Here is a photo from another book I took one afternoons with my girlfriend Angel. I usually use scrapbook papers, but the readers Hannah said that gift wrap papers work well too - thanks for the tip Hannah! Put out your empty sheet ofaper.
I use 30 pages 6" x 8" high grade stationery. Use as many or as few leaves as you like. Well, I think 30 sheet's a good enough length for a picture-book. Trim two pieces of board that are exactly the same format as your plain sheet, e.g. 6" x 8" in my case.
Do this again for the other sheet of carton. In essence, a thin stripe (just under"½", or exactly 1 cm) is removed from each carton. Cuts out two beautiful sheets of sheet for the outside of the envelopes. Every sheet should be 1 " longer and 1 " more wide than the empty one.
As an example, my empty sheet is 6" x 8", so I have trimmed my beautiful sheet to 7 ½" x 9 ½". Put one of your beautiful pages with the printed side down and sketch a frame of " with graphite. Adhere the carton to the beautiful piece of sheet metal so that it matches the edge you have drawn in the preceding drawing stage.
Ensure that you do not only coat the sides but the entire surface of the carton with adhesive. That'?ll be the back. The" hinge" is the space in the box that makes the book easily openable. When using thin sheet of papermaking tissue (e.g. packing paper), it is better to put the adhesive on the papermaking machine than on the carton.
Tends to expand due to the humidity in the adhesive. Apply the adhesive directly to the sheet of card, giving the sheet a shot of swelling before it comes into use. The same applies to the front panel. Be sure to stick the sheet on the right way up!
I had a little birdy on my wrapper, so I had to make sure it was the right way up. Tuck the corner as far as it will go and stick it in place. The same applies to the other coverage. Buckle in the edge and stick it in as well.
Slice out two pages of sheet for the inside of the envelopes. I use this purple sheet with a flapwork. Items should be"½" smaller than the empty piece ofaper. I have 6 " x 8" empty sheet, so I trim out the sheet for the inside pages to 5 ½" x 7 ½".
It' hardest part, how to make a book, but not too hard. When you are fortunate enough to have a powerful puncher, you will have no problem cutting through your cover and pages of the night.
Whether or not you can pierce it really does depend on the size of the card sleeve, but it's a good idea to try. When using a stamping unit, cut through the lids and pages one after the other. But what if I don't have a hardcutter?
When you have a bit, make a "sandwich", the lid, empty sheet, lid, but with the lids on the inside out. Boring with the inside panels on the outside will hide the corners and corners when you turn the panels properly later. You can use Taurus Stier to keep the slice together, then place it on an old telephone book or something you like to punch a whole into.
Each of them should be "1 ½" from the beginning of the book, and the other should be "1 ½" from the end of the book. It' s the right moment to do the real bonding, which is the really smart part of the japanes way to make a book.
You need a sliver six of the size of the book. I have a 6" book, for example, so I need about 36" color-ribbons. Here is a videotape of my man showing how to make the bond. If you cannot watch the movie, here is a step-by-step guide.
Making a book: Here is the final book: Good job to learn how to make a book! Here are some beautiful pictures of people who have learnt how to make a book on this page. "This are some pictures of my first bindings in Japan. "I had a lot of pleasure doing a diary/notepad, I even liked it so much that I chose to do 2, and I think I'll do more...."
"I' ve tried the book/Japanese Bond as a gift for my friend's family. Rather than making one front page, I made two and I did it so you can turn it over so that both sides can be the front page. That' s why the front page is from top to bottom and the other from right to top. Anyway, I just wanted to say that it was a really funny project" "I wanted to say that I totally like this book-toutorial.
" "Thank you for your introductory book - I'm so happy with how mine has developed! "I wanted to thank you so much for your great teaching how to make a book with japanesque bindings! It' been a great help and I made one for my best friend's anniversary.
I have a boyfriend who loves rose, so my suggestion was to use'flowering rose' for the front envelope and then'leaves' for the back one. "Thank you very much for your great book-toutorial! I' ve just completed my first book and can't wait to start with another one!
" "Thanks for this great technology in making a book. Thank you for the bookbinding instruction! I' ve used your technology to make a children's book as a teaching tool and it was a great success! I' ve enjoyed doing one of your bindings in Japan so much.
Instead of using tissue I used it and it looks nice and is very thick (I tried it with tissue first, but it cracked at the crease). To my friend I made a 365-page book to remember him to stay for a year while we were separated. The japanes bookbinding guide worked for my book perfect, even for such a big book!
