I decided on just making an insert for my leather sketch cover using Martha’s tutorial. http://www.dickblick.com/zz100/61a/ is pretty cheap takes 2 sheets so total cost is pretty low. btw thx for posting all your findings so far ive built a custom sketch book and now use a kuretake brush pen constantly. cheers Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/elarrr/blog.artandstory.com/wp-includes/kses.php on line 1002

Good point. I'm pretty sure the grain is running parallel with the spine. Martha's recommendations take this into account to help with folding. I definitely think the curve is from leaving the paper rolled up for too long. Plus, I accidentally used 22x30" 300gsm paper instead of 22x30" 200gsm — see my post here: <a href=http://blog.artandstory.com/2007/09/07/notes-on-materials-moleskine-mod rel="nofollow">http://blog.artandstory.com/2007/09/07/notes-on-materials-moleskine-mod</a> — and I think this made the curve more stubborn. A lighter weight paper would have been more flexible. Thanks for your comment!

If so, try that next time - it will help a great deal. Hi there, could the curve in the page be because the paper grain runs across the book, rather than parallel with the spine?

I'm sure you could do this. I did it in about half a day or afternoon to early evening. What took the longest was acquiring all the supplies beforehand. Thanks, Steve. I’m sure you could do this.

I never said anything about binding the used loose pages into the book, so that was YOUR idea! haha! You get the credit! HOWEVER, I did actually have the thought to do that very thing at one time, but when it came time to bind the book, I forgot about it entirely. Thanks for the reminder. Now I wish I had. Oh well, maybe they'll fit in the back pocket. mARTa — Well, you’re giving me a little too much credit.

I haven't tried the moleskine daily planner yet but I like your idea of using the precut watercolor pages and then binding them. I am traveling to Europe for a month in October and might just take the paper and bind when I get home....I also loved all your photos! I think I will post a photo of the last book I bound as well.

I'm glad you enjoyed looking at the photos. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and inspiring me to do this project. It is fun! Even though I took two semesters of "Books" when I was in college, I took LOTS of notes on bookbinding, but I didn't do very much of it and/or never quite got the hang of it. I mostly focused on experimental books and letterpress printing broadsides and postcards. SO... it is really nice to get back into it and take it to the next step. Thank you, Martha!

It's my first. It's totally functional, but I'll probably do better next time. First thing, I won't leave my watercolor paper rolled up for two weeks. I'm trying all kinds of things to get the curve out. Second, I could've folded the pages a little crisper. This would cut down on the thickness of the bookblock. Thirdly, the signatures are sewn pretty well, but they could've been sewn to one-another a lot more tightly. All-in-all, though, it's a successful first run at it. I'd encourage you not to be shy and just go for it. Martha's instructions are very good. Thanks, Maile! It’s my first. It’s totally functional, but I’ll probably do better next time.
