The Book Binding Process

The book binding is not really going as well as I’d hoped it would. After a lot of trial and error, I’ve found the best method for me to work with which is the one listed in Bloomsbury’s Guide. Though this appears to be intended for hardcover books, it works just as well for me, because it doesn’t require double sided printing, and the hardcover can easily be replaced with a soft one.

Essentially, it just involves printing out each individual spread, and gluing them together, side by side, so that the blank backs of each page are attached to each other. Using this method instead of dividing the book into signatures also allows the spine to be thicker, which gives it more of a presence.

All I’ve got left to do now is design and attach the cover!
