Fun and Unique Approaches to Handmade Structures

Whether you're new to book making or an experienced paper artist looking for new ideas, Creating Books & Boxes will provide you with hours of creative inspiration. Author Benjamin D. Rinehart covers all the basics of book and box construction, such as tools, adhesives, archival properties, cutting, and terminology, but then adds unique twists to make the book's eleven projects surprising, fun and dimensional.

In addition to making paper wrap-around covers and simple stitches, this book also includes detailed instructions for such finishing touches and decorative elements as paper dyeing, copy transfers, stamping, and paste papers.

The book's step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, yet the projects are sophisticated and beautiful. Stitch up an accordion-style booklet, build an origami box, create a beautiful sewn journal, make your own picture frame, or construct your own unique box structures.
