Create your own photobook
All you need to create your photobook: Handcrafted photobooks can be a great souvenir of an occasion and a great personal present. While you may think that a professional-looking book would be out of the question without certain instruments and abilities, the underlying assumption is simple, although it takes a few tries to get exactly what you want.
In this sense, it is always best to make a few testers. For this example, I kept the tutorial as straightforward as possible to show how straightforward it is to create your own album. It is an A4 page in the middle so that an A4 document can be printed.
Though, an A4 book is the ideal sized for a present, maybe full of vacation pictures or even a small marriage-book. I used Microsoft PowerPoint for this manual because it is an easiest way to insert pictures and see the lay-out of your whole book. Photoshop works just as well by producing an A4 picture that appears as a double page in the book.
If you are using Photoshop or other photo editor applications, make sure you have a map of where all your pages will appear. In order to design the lay-out for an A4 page, make each PowerPoint or Photoshop picture on A4 page horizontal and generate a 14.85 cm vertically oriented policy. With this the limits of the 5 pages within the book are defined.
Also, keep in mind to add a 5mm trim around all your pictures and text as the book blocks will be trimmed later. Next, order your outsides that will be imprinted on the back of the inside pages. If you get to the end of section 2 before going through the entrance to section 1, bind a node the length of the yarn remaining from the beginning of section 3.
If you do this, insert the pin under the underlying yarn to form a strap, and then bind a lump to lock the yarn. Trim the rest of the yarn. You can use the inside of the cardboard to unfold your pages. Pressing the sheet against the page ensures that the seam finds the center of the pages.
It is especially important when pictures appear on both sides of your page or when your pictures are fully cropped. Now you need to use the sheet metal tray to make a pattern that can be used as a guideline when puncturing the sheet. This stencil should be the book blocks high - in this case 21cm.
At the top and bottom a distance of 5cm with 3x 3cm for the yarn has been kept. Push each section of the book alternately from top to bottom to make sure your pictures look even from top to bottom. Pin your stencil in the center of the section and puncture a little bit into each side where you slit the pattern with an overlapping stencil.
Trim a length of string 3.5 times as high as the bookpad. Start with section 3 and draw the running surface with the pin through each of the holes, staying about 4 cm at the end. Do not forget to hold yourself tight along the spinal column. When you are finished with your stitching as described in step 5, dangle a lump with the rest of the yarn and the 4 cm long length on the duff.
Measuring the book blocks and cutting out a back from the previously generated pattern. Using a roll, spread a very thin, even coat of PVA adhesive on the bookpad. Trim a slice of Hesse (or similar) that has the book blocks high and is about 4 cm high.
Put your back on the book blocks and then encircle them with your book blocks in Hesse to give them a taut, sleek look. It will help to keep the spinal column in place while drying. Put the boards on the back of the desired cloth. On both sides of the spinal column there should be a distance of 5 mm.
If possible, trim it out with a straightedge and blade to make sure it is upright. Coming from the top of the bookcase, take about 5. Put a sheet of sheet of sheet between the first page and the remainder of the pad. They want the papers to be sticky, not moist. Make sure the back is folded around the back of the book blocks before pressing it down hard and letting it air-dried for a few inches.
