"Each of these books is so extraordinary it is a work of art, and the techniques you'll learn to make them all with are exciting. Starting with a basic concertina or accordion fold book, each project builds on what you've already mastered and introduces new skills. You'll look at ways to combine techniques to create more complex editions. Other projects include an edition with two signatures bound together with a pamphlet stitch and another with a multi-signature and tacket binding. You'll love the creative ideas for using your finished work, from botanical to specimen books. Make the projects your own--the fabulous gallery photos will show you some sensational ways that artists are stretching the boundaries so you can, too."--Publisher's description
