From inside cover: “All the way from sewing together mother’s letter paper to folding, pasting and binding a real book, -- boys and girls are introduced in this small book to the fun of bookmaking. First, there are easy books, -- scrapbooks, photograph albums, babies’ picture books, -- and lots of other ideas for rainy days at home. Then as you read on, you find clear directions for making a real book, -- and hear about signatures, lay cords, and kettle stitches. Finally, there are suggestions for rebinding old favorite books that have been read so much that the covers are worn out.”
