Further experimentation with Japanese Stab Binding patterns. Each binding in this set is progressively complex. At the same time, the color of each binding moves through the spectrum from red to violet.

Rainbow book. I made this book last Friday, inspired by a rainbow. Lucky I had made all the colours I needed to cover this and then have enough for the pages.

Crappy pic, but here is the most recent book I made. I love the way the stitching turned out, even if it isn't how it was supposed to be =P This was a request for a friend.

I made a handful of small Japanese stab books during the power outages from the recent snowstorm. The covers are paint chips and the thread is either natural waxed linen thread or some baker's twine we have.

 

There's a few black/gray ones, a cyan one, a purple one, a yellow one, and one similar to the background in our "logo"

 

Each book also has a corresponding endsheet as well.

 

The books were all hand cut, punched, and bound by me.

This custom order was a special request to bind the contents of a blog for a gift for the blog's writer. I used a Japanese/stab binding and hinged both the front and back covers.

 

Blogged:

prairiepeasant.blogspot.com/2012/01/custom-order.html

The covers are made with inlaid strips of leather. Both front covers have a hinge joint and the back cover has hinge joints at each end so it is quite flexible. And of course, a classic yotsume toji binding.

Handbound Japanese Stab Binding

Edition of 2

couple of books I made this semester..

The title of the brief was 'I am the Lie'. And just from those 4 words I had to create/ develop my own brief.

I created a set of 5 A5 booklets. Each Booklet set on one different conspiracy, such as:

The death of Elvis

UFOs

The Iraqi war

etc.

 

On the cover is 2 sets of 4 laser cut squares. With the removal of the belly band, the shapes from both the belly band and the cover the word 'LIE' is formed.

This was a fun custom order. And turned out smashingly well. If I do say so me-self.

The third book I made in a Japanese Stab Binding class. This was probably the most well made of the four. I'm not sure why this style is called Hemp Leaf. Maybe someone was high when they created it.

Up to something again. I don't think this stitching will be visible when I'm done, so I thought I'd show it off while it is. This is also a large book though, so I'm not sure when I'll finish it.

These books feature stab-binding. Literally, you line everything up and stab a sturdy needle through the whole book. Or, you find the tiniest drill bit in your dad's toolbox and use that to pre-drill holes. Go slow, though: drilling too fast will shred the pages.

There are heaps more colours I have made. I had free range for colours I could use. 50 Bonbonierre books.

Another cool notepad. One that would look fab in your kitchen. By the fridge?

Pale yellow card board mixed with yellow metallic card board was used to make the handmade paper that covers this book.
