In the past year, I already had some of my travel photos printed out as books through an On-Demand book printer in Beijing, but this is my very first time to do the binding myself ...... a case binding learnt from little book of BOOK MAKING brought from New York.
|Size : A4 borderless|
Paper Stock : 157gsm Art Card Paper (off-white) Printing Side : Double Sided
One set is 39 pcs of A4 Art cards double-sided, totalling 78 sides
|Folding part : Fold 1 A4 into half (folio) ; 3 Folios per signature; Total 13 signatures.|
|9 holes (20-25mm apart) are pierced with the awl.|
The stitching is the most time-consuming & tedious process.
Here are the results. Ho! Ho!
Still got 4 more to go.
|The front & back end-paper is the subway map printed on special paper|
using Epson Ink-jet printer.
|I intentionally leave the spine (the back of text block) in loose form.|
|Finally, have added the dustjacket.|
