Bookbinding

I decided to give my bookbinding skills a whirl and construct a few sketchbooks that I can use when I am on the go and get that inkling to draw or jot something down.

Naturally, I kept an artist in mind when constructing these sketchbooks. I used a coptic stitch method because it allows the book to be opened completely flat which is useful when drawing. I created hard cover books so that the front and back panels act like a support in case there is no surface to work on. I kept the sizes relatively small so that they are lightweight and handy.
